I'm trying to remember an old gold mining video game (probably mid to late 80s). I think it was dos. It was similar to Miner VGA, but after playing that a few times it was definitely not that game. [more inside]
I need suggestions for old DOS era games that only supported playing with the original floppy disk(s) in drive A: and offered no hard disk install option. [more inside]
I am looking for an old BASIC(?)-programmed DOS game. It is about defending North America from an invasion of killer bees. I believe the file was SWARM.EXE, and I'm pretty sure it was freeware. [more inside]
When I was a kid I played a DOS game that involved a man running through mazes and avoiding man-eating worms to collect pieces to build a knight. The game ends with the completed knight fighting a dragon. Does anyone have any idea what this game was called?
Idle nostalgic curiosity is driving me crazy - looking for at least the name (at best, a working version) of a late 80s/early 90s DOS (not arcade) 2-d ninja game - very simple, and the most notable characteristic is that the entire game was in uber-simple orange-red-green VGA palette colors against a black background.

I'm trying to remember a DOS game I used to play. It was an adventure type game where each level you had a task to complete in a dungeons-and-dragons type setting, so mages, archers, skeletons, that sort of thing. [more inside]
Can you help my sister & me identify this half-remembered DOS game? [more inside]
I used to play an old DOS game in which you had to manuever a paper airplane through a house, with each room being a different level, each of which got progressively harder through the addition of obstacles. The plane, if I recall correctly, had a fixed rate of descent and could only rise by moving over a fan/vent. If you touched anything you died. It was an awesome combination of puzzle/action. Bonus points if you tell me how I can play it on a modern WinXP box.
