could you confirm whether or not it installs any wierd add-ons?
thanks
Ran an Ad checker and Virus checker after installation and it came back clean, so it looks to be a sound program.
And nobody yet posted this on facebook? Great freebie?
So no catch then?
and no catch ?
TrackMania Nations is on their list too. Seems too good to be true! Hot if legit.
It would appear you have to watch an ad from time to time. No big problem for me.

I loved Sensible Soccer & Cannon Fodder! Unfortunately I'm on Mac, so not for me, but heat for the memories!
Looks like all these games are free regardless. See myabandonware.com for more games.
On a Mac, Crossover might help get then running.

Abandonware isn't legal and the games are only free because they are distributed without permission of the copyright holders.

Perhaps but I think Jogobox is equally legal/illegal as Abandonware.

Wiki: Abandonware is a product for which no product support is available and the manufacturer is ignoring the product. It is differentiated from a discontinued product because the manufacturer has not issued an official notice of discontinuance, instead, the manufacturer is simply ignoring the product. Copyright ownership may be unclear because while the manufacturer is ignoring the product it may not be tracking or enforcing copyright violations.
Nice find.
Heat added.
Time to play some of the old classics!

♫ War never been so much fun ♫
Just looked.. Moonstone! Loved that game!
BioForge was great too! Shame I get an unable to retrieve database message on running. Looks like it needs further development!

Hi,

could you please provide us with some more details about "win8 stops the app"? We have run the JogoBox app here without any problems on a Windows 8 machine, but of course can't check all possible setups. We would greatly appreciate any feedback you could give us! (If you want, you could also mail it to info@jogobox.com)

And no, JogoBox does not install any weird add-ons We do however keep a service running, which is used to prevent too many "admin rights" popus while installing/running the games. If you want to, it's safe to kill when you don't have JogoBox running (you will be prompted for permission when starting JogoBox the next time, since we do need the service to run the app :))

With kind regards,
The JogoBox team
Will give it a go for the memories thx.
Not many good 'classics'

Downloaded because of that game. Dragon used to always deck me!
MAME is brilliant if you haven't heard of it. It's an arcade machine emulator.
