ScummVM: A great emulator for playing old classic games

ScummVM is a great emulator if you ever feel nostalgic and want to play old point-and-click games like, "The Secret of Monkey Island", "Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars" or even "Indiana Jones and the Curse of Atlantis". This emulator will make your newer computer with new operating systems run these classic games.

It is very easy to install and load games because it comes with an installer and portable edition. The bad thing about the tool is that it doesn't come with an online library of games not does it have any installed, so if you don't have the game, you will need to buy it.
It does, however, have an online collection of demos that you can download, import into ScummVM, and try them out.

The application uses a nice and retro user interface which goes pretty well with the point and click genre. By finding and selecting the directory with all the data you can easily add any game you want. A minor issue that we prefer to overlook is that the file navigator is a bit tedious to use.

By adding multiple games you can easily switch between them. While you can set a game's display name, you can also enhance the gaming experience by selecting a language if there are multiple options available, and choosing the engine. You can choose from DOS, Apple II, 3DO, Amiga, Nintendo Wii, Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and others.

ScummVM also has the feature to override the default graphic and audio settings when it comes to the graphics and render modes, such as Aspect Ratio, Fullscreen, Music device, AdLib emulator, text, speech, and subtitle speed along with music, sound effects and speech volume.

The emulator worked great on Windows 10 by testing games downloaded from the developer's site. With all these, ScummVM is a great application to have if you want to experience the nostalgia of classic games that redefined the whole genre. It's also free and open-source which requires no kind of programming experience.
