Hmm... I guess it's okay. It could be better, of course. I thought there would be more...

Asteroids = 1979
Galaga = 1981

Not much in the 60s. There was Spacewar in 1961 at MIT, and play that, you need to go to the PDP-1 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spacewar%21).

To play a video game outside of a university, you pretty much had to wait for the 70's.

Cool games, nice to have these back again!

@John
I've played Galaga and Asteroids on a GBA (GameBoy Advance) and Defender on an Xbox 360.

Were you even able to play games in the 60's, I didn't think desktop computers (Like ZXSpectrum) were out.

Sorry 'bout the filename problem. Those were made before I learned to name things correctly :P I'm not positive when all those games were made. I just guessed they were made in the 60s. ;)

I had to fix up the image/sound/font filenames for it to work on my system (the old case-sensitive vs. case-insensitive issue), but they all played quite nicely. Surely you mean 70s games, though? Or maybe 80s for Galaga? :-)
