Early Macintosh Emulator Now Available at Internet Archive

MacOS System 6 (Version 6.0.8)

If you’re looking for an Apple-themed trip back in time, the Internet Archive is the place to go. After hitting surpassing 500 Apple II programs that can be run from your browser, the nonprofit organization set its sites on emulators to take you on a journey through the history of the Macintosh.

Check out the Archive’s Macintosh software library here to experience classics such as MacOS System 6 or Microsoft BASIC right from your browser. The Archive even calls out specifically in its blog the “rather rich recreation” of the 1991 MacOS experience of System 7.0.1.

Want to play the games of your youth? Space Invaders, Dark Castle and Frogger among others are back with nostalgia-inducing black and white imagery.

But there is more than just software with this latest treasure trove. The Archive also has the “complete run of Macworld magazine and these deep-dive Macintosh books” for your perusal.

So take a journey back in time courtesy of the Internet Archive, and let us know in the comments if you find any diamonds in the rough!
