StSold.jpgI loved the old point and click adventures on the PC, in fact the very first game I purchased for the PC was Simon the Sorcerer, which was such a magical title and had me playing for hours and hours. These older games were designed with DOS in mind and on todays machines compatibility problems arise. This is where the great ScummVM comes in:

“ScummVM is a ‘virtual machine’ for several classic graphical point-and-click adventure games. It is designed to run: Adventure Soft’s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution’s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system. SCUMM is used for many games, including Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more.”
