Now that Angry Birds
has come to Chrome
, none of us have any reason to leave the house. But if you like your games closer to 1fps, NaClBox may be more your speed. The Chrome-only emulator revives such DOS-based classics as The Secret of Monkey Island
, Falcon 3.0
, and Alone In the Dark
. Most are demos, meant to show off the browser's Native Client potential and tug the heartstrings of retro-gamers
. And we'll admit getting a little misty at stepping back into the blocky shoes of Guybrush Threepwood -- but maybe even more so at the bleepy-bloopy Soundblaster-era soundtrack.
