Play retro point-and-click games using this intuitive emulator that supports DOS, Amiga, Macintosh, Apple II, 3DO and other platforms
If you’re nostalgic about old point-and-click games such as “Indiana Jones and the Curse of Atlantis”, “The Secret of Monkey Island” or “Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars”, you can use ScummVM as an emulator. It enables classical games to run on newer machines and operating systems.
ScummVM comes in an installer and portable edition, making it really easy to set up and load games. Just keep in mind that the application doesn’t actually come with installed games or have an online library of titles that you can download for free.

Therefore, unless you already have the game, you have to purchase it. On the bright side, there’s an online collection of free-to-try demos that you can download and import into ScummVM to see how it works.
The app’s GUI has a retro vibe that goes well with the traditional point-and-click genre. Games can be added to the library by finding and selecting the directory with all game data. This might be a bit tedious because its file navigator is not exactly practical, but it’s a minor issue we’re willing to overlook.
Supports DOS, Amiga, Wii, Linux, Macintosh and other platforms
Multiple games can be added to the library to easily switch through them. Besides setting a game display name, you can enhance the gaming experience by picking a language if there are multiple options available, and by specifying the engine. The platform can be chosen from DOS, Apple II, 3DO, Amiga, Nintendo Wii, Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and others.
Furthermore, you can override the global graphic and audio settings when it comes to the graphics and render mode, aspect ratio, fullscreen, music device, AdLib emulator, text and speech and subtitle speed, along with music, sound effects and speech volume.
Intuitive and fun game emulator
It worked smoothly on Windows 10 in our tests with the demos we downloaded from the developer’s website. All aspects considered, ScummVM is a must-have app for any gamer who wants a go at old point-and-click games that managed to redefine the entire genre. It’s free and open-source, requiring no kind of programming experience.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used ScummVM and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
