900 Arcade Games Emulated In Yer Browser

Tireless preservers of multimedia The Internet Archive have begun adding videogames to their publicly-accessible non-profit digi-shelves. You can now play 900 ye olde arcadee gamese for no-pennies, including Galaga, Defender, Outrun, assorted Pac-people and as I’ve screenshotted above, the one everyone talks about all the time time, The Three Stooges.

The Internet Arcade uses a modification of home console and computer emulator Javascript Mess Project, or JSMESS, the result being that games which are usually emulated via a MAME application now run in the browser.

They’re not all recreated perfectly, warns curator Jason Scott, so expect all manner of display and control glitches and incompatibilities, but random clicking through the archive worked out pretty well for me, I must say.

Scott has some tips about how to make JSMESS run at its best here.
