Build a business case: developing custom apps

Games, we love 'em. We've played a fair few of them over the years too. And while we've seen graphics evolve from barely distinguishable bunches of pixels to elegantly sculpted and rendered 3D models, and virtual arenas expand from the limits of a screen's resolution to take in entire cityscapes, one thing is constant among all the games we've enjoyed: cracking gameplay.

That's what unites all the entries in Antique Code Show, The Register's homage to the classic games of yesteryear. From the early days in the arcade, through the 8-bit home computer revolution of the 1980s and the 3D explosion of the 1990s, ACS fondly recalls the titles - big sellers, leftfield hits and cult faves alike - we were too busy playing to remember not to forget.

Just so you can get your nostalgia fix in one place, we’ve pulled together our ACC archive into a pair of ebooks. One covers the 80s, one covers the 90s, but both serve up highlights from across the genre spectrum - arcade blasters to adventure classics to first-person shooters.

And, all in high quality eink or glistening retina display, depending what you read your ebooks on. Let’s face it, the past never looked so good as it does viewed from today. Grab your copies right here. ®
