    I got DSx86 on my DS Lite, so I wanted to try some games for DOS.

    Any suggestions for any good DOS games would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hexxagon, Lemmings (although there's a dedicated DS version on that), Civilization. I would mention more but I have to go now.

    there was a thread like this a while ago, i think i was the one who made it :P. Dizzy the egg being one of them, on the DSx86 site they have a list of dos games that work, i never got how to load games on it, but theres a dos game i love to play, its called empire, its a bit like risk. If you want il send you a copy.

    It's a DOS emulator. If you don't know how to use it, then you clearly don't know how to use DOS in general. It's all about the C:\ Prompt, knowing your folders, and where your .exe files are.

    Nah, although Tetris is one of the greatest games ever, playing it on a DS you're MUCH better off just getting Tetris DS, or Tetris Party Deluxe (or both like me :P)

    Just go to any abandonware site that has a mixture of abandonware and warez and u will find a lot of goodies. This stuff used to take hours to download now it only takes seconds and you don't have to deal with a$$holes on a dialup bbs :) the joys of the internet

    Alleycat: Very challenging classic game and very fun. You play as a cat, trying to do several things, by trying to break into people's homes. If you don't like it, then at least listen to the music at the title screen, it rocks.
    Battle chess: Simple concept: chess with living pieces. Execution is great because it is very satisfying seeing your opponents pieces being smashed.
    Prince of persia and prince of persia 2 shadow and flame: Another classic that's also hard as nails. You have a time limit (60 minutes IIRC) in which you have to save the princess. You can die as much as you want, but once you run out of time it's game over. After completing this game, you will hate spikes with a passion, be warned.

    I didn't really play much DOS game, but these are the ones I liked. Graphics are very old though, most games are from the early ms-dos years (with the exception of PoP2).
