To play the classic DOS games on Ubuntu (or any other OS), you have to use a DOS emulator. I personally prefer DOSBox, which works on Linux and Windows.

  • Install DOSBox- Download Prince of Persia- Start playing

Install DOSBox

Install with aptitude.

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install dosbox

Download Prince of Persia (classic)

Create a directory called games. Mine is located under /home/arul/games.

mkdir ~/games

Download Prince of Persia from here. Unzip and copy the files to ~/games/prince.

Start playing

Start DOSBox first.

dosbox

It starts the emulator which looks like this:

dosbox emulator

Lets mount the games directory. Go to the DOS shell and type this substituting USER for your username:

mount c /home/USER/games
c:
cd prince
prince1

This will start Prince of Persia. You can download and play other classic DOS games the same way. ENJOY!
