My dad has been bought a laptop. Onboard graphice 256 Ram and 1.4 gig processor.

Any free, shooter games (or racing) that will run ok?

Thanks in advance.

Oh yeah he's not online. I'll have to download and pass the games on.

Thanks again!

101 Free games - click here

Deceptively titled, as some are actually mods for existing games - have a look through, some are quite good.

The 'Horizontal Shooter with Boss' Competition ended a week or so ago, and you can download the top ten of those at click here, also click here is fancy and there's a fantastic remake of old Amiga shooter Alien Breed at click here

Ah - which reminds me - Remakes.org (click here) classic games remade for the PC - all free, varying degrees of quality (SWIV Decimation is another good shooter though)

If he bores of shooting things, and wants to try a point-and-click adventure then there's a few (ex-commmercial) to download at ScummVM (click here)

Some might struggle on his set-up I'm afraid, Grid Runner (click here) is brilliant - but may require a PC with more go...

thanks again.

I went upto his house, in the rain, with a disk loaded with stuff and the laptop wouldn't see the disk so got soaked for nothing. Anyway have the lappy here with all the games running fine plus a few I found myself.

Much appreciated.
