ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include Adventure Soft’s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution’s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep’s Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision’s Gobliiins; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. You can find a thorough list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is continually improving, so check back often.

Release notes:

-Please help test ScummVM DS 1.0.0 beta3! Download here!

Please test this new beta version of ScummVM, and post your results here. It would be good to know which games you have tested.

This is the big one – version 1.0.0. It’s a big milestone for the whole ScummVM project, as this means the project is out of the first development phase and into a real prime-time release!

So it’s important that this version is as good as it can be. Whether that happens will be down to all you great forum users. If you try this and post any bugs you may find, you’ll be helping to make ScummVM DS better for everyone. I can only test a small number of games, so if you have played a game and know it works, please post that here too.

New features in this version:

New Features

* A mouse pad area underneath the on-screen keybaord allows you to move the mouse with the keyboard open.
* Using the laptop trackpad-style controls, moving the cursor to the edge of the screen now scrolls the view
* The usual round of bugfixes.
