DOS Classic Games in Ubuntu - Ancient Art of War and Lode Runner

One of my favorite game is Ancient Art of War. It was created in DOS/PC-XT times. It was amazing that the PC processing speed is so little compared to now, they managed to come out with a real-time strategy game (almost real-time) with some good AI. It even has a terrain/map editor. All under 560KB. I cannot imagine writing any real application under 1 MB.

I tried out dosbox and mount the drive as C: drive (mount c /home) and launch it:

$dosbox war.bat

It works perfectly, and even support the 'Beep' sound for the game!

Another classics is Lode Runner. One of the most additive game during then!
