JogoBox: Thousands of free games

If you’re a gamer who is into retro type games in particular then you might be interested in JogoBox. This new free application provides a way for you to download classic games at no cost. JogoBox’s massive library encompasses thousands of games, including titles such as; Civilization, Tomb Raider, Super Mario, Tetris, Bejeweled, Counter Strike and Command & Conquer. All downloaded games are maintained in a centralized personal library for quick and easy access.

JogoBox not only features the newest browser games, but also fully installable PC games.

Whether you are looking for the newest Flash games or want to return to the golden age of classic PC gaming, in JogoBox you’ll find the perfect games and install them in no time.

Can’t find your favourite game? Keep an eye on the welcome page, because new games are added to JogoBox on a daily basis!

JogoBox’s initial download is just 326KB but this is merely a pre-installer which, when run, launches a further download. The main download appears to be around 66MB. Installation is straightforward and clean. The application’s opening screen displays a variety of Featured, New, and Popular games as well a simple and intuitive navigation system:

Utilize the ‘Search’ box at top right to locate a particular title or click on the ‘Categories’ menu item to browse titles in each included category:

Click on any game to select it and you will then see a new screen including a brief description, game play controls, and system requirements. Simply click on the ‘Play Now’ button to start downloading:

All downloaded games are then accessible from the ‘My Games’ link in the main menu and playable full screen. The icons on the right allow you to create a desktop shortcut and uninstall downloaded games:

JogoBox supports Window XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit). JogoBox is currently in Beta but I didn’t experience any issues during testing on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit machine in Sandboxie.
