Best free games under 10MB?

Recommended Posts

Games without music or games that use soundfonts use much less file space.

 

This 10 MB thing would be an interesting challenge.

 

Halloween is coming... might be time to make Revenant Quest.

Like, a Sierra style point and click? I'd be down for that!

I was thinking more of Gargoyle's Quest meets Metroid. It's an idea I've had for years now without the time to make it.

 

4x the size so people can see it:

Don't mind the white. Just makes Revy easier to see.

I dunno if you'd call it a "best game," but I remember a little FPS-style tech demo that made some noise back in 2004 called .kkrieger.

 

Its main thing? The whole game was 96 KILOBYTES.

 

It achieved this through procedural generation of just about everything. The monsters, the weapons, the textures... everything.

 

Quote

Textures are stored via their creation history instead of a per-pixel basis, thus only requiring the history data and the generator code to be compiled into the executable, producing a relatively small file size. Meshes are created from basic solids such as boxes and cylinders, which are then deformed to achieve the desired shape - essentially a special way of box modeling. These two generation processes account for the extensive loading time of the game — all assets of the gameplay are reproduced during the loading phase.

 

Source code for it is online too for those curious in poking around.

Moraff's Dungeons of the Unforgiven is 1.4mb. However I never said it was good.

So you don't think it's good, but you think it is one of the best (thread title)? ;-)

.kkrieger was in my list, on the previous page.

 

I've forgotten a "classic" : Anacreon 4021

One of the earlier "4X" games (Xploration, Xpansion, Xploitation, Xtermination), in which you run an interstellar empire, first published in 1987.

There's a Windows edition - latest is v2.1d published in 2005, under 2.5 MB unzipped : http://neurohack.com/anacreon/

The graphically minimalist DOS version is still around (latest revision in 2004), it's under 1MB. There's also a new version online, but that's off-topic.

Not really an action game, but very good anyways !

While not really under 10 MB, I really want to mention Locomalito's games. https://www.locomalito.com/

They are for the most part free and of very, very high quality, especially titles like Malditta Castillam, Hydorah or Curse of Issyos.

Under 10mb is a bit of a tall order. One game I've been playing on and off that's like that is Kobo Deluxe. Another one which is kinda of interesting is ZZT, which is easy to get on the Internet, although I can't remember right now if it is technically freeware nowadays.

Oh yes, that was also a very good one! Played that one as well, back then.

 

On topic though, one might also check out the games listed on pouet.net (demoscene resource). The games are usually really small, since size coding is a big part of the demoscene, and if sorted by rating you can be sure to have some interesting titles at the top.

 

Check it out!

Something I would do for sure is download PAC-MAN. Shouldn't be too big a file size, and I know damn well there are free downloadable versions of the original game, shit, I've had one since 2003!....well, my dad had it. I just use it as well

After searching for a 10MB Games or below this limit, I have found the below ones...

 

1. Dr.Driving

2. Basket Ball Shoot

3. Ultimate Football

4. Ludo Game

5. Archery

 

These games are highly popular for being small and it fits your needs as well.

Transport Tycoon Deluxe

You mean OpenTTD? I never realised that the download is below 10 MiB but it's without music and sounds though.
