16-bit classics now part of Internet Archive

The Internet Archive, a repository of old software and games that can be played inside a browser, has uploaded more than 2,000 games from the '80s and '90s era of the Commodore Amiga.

The collection, playable for free on PC, includes such fun classics as Bubble Bobble, Xenon 2 Megablast, Treasure Island Dizzy, Battle Command, Nebulus, Silent Service, R-Type and PacMania.

The 16-bit Amiga home computer was launched in 1985 as a successor to the C-64. It enjoyed enormous success for more than a decade, spawning a lively creative and games scene, before being eclipsed by the rise of Windows PCs and advanced consoles.

The Internet Archive features thousands of playable programs from various platforms including MS-DOS and classic PC era, Atari 2600, Sega Genesis and more.
