2D low-spec games recommendations

Lets make a list of awsome old games that run on low-spec laptops and old pc's. My integrated 9000m nvidia graphic have gone seriousley wrong on my laptop so i am forced to play old 2d game, and i am running out of ideaswhat to 'find' to play


ps: i saw the retro gaming section but i dont think this falls under it, despite people mentioning some of this games in posts, and deus ex being an 'retro game'? Can dream about running that with my shit.


c&c Red Alert 2 + Yuri's revenge expansion


Counter Strike 1.6

Sid Meir's Alpha Centaur + Alien crossfire expansion

Conquest Frontier Wars

Oddworld Inhabitans series




Where as I would reccommend some of these games, others in the list are simply there due to popularity.


Maple Story

Super Meat Boy

Mark of the Ninja




Worms Revolution


If you don't think any of those take your fancey take a look in the Indie section of Steam. Most games there don't require high specs.

actually bastion needs some reletivly high specs, that laptop probably can't play it

Meh i dont really fancy indy games, all are plain to simple, i like real big complex games, but i guess they have to be old due to my weak graphic..

I tried terraria before and it LAGS ;)

Battle for Wesnoth!  Great game and it will run on anything, plus its free.

Black and white 2 :D

Faster than Light (often called FTL)

Ticket to Ride

Cogs (if you like puzzle games)


Dungeons of Dredmor

Fate of the World

Revenge of the Titans



Hotline Miami for some 80's ultraviolent goodness

Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment

These are complex games that will run on your computer.  Visit GOG.com
