Games can now be embedded directly into Twitter

A number of classic video games can now be played directly via Twitter.

This isn't due to any functionality that the social media platform has introduced, The Guardian reports, but is instead as a result of The Internet Archive's release of 2,600 MS-DOS games.

These were actually designed to e played via browsers, but it has since been discovered that embedding their page link into tweets makes them playable under certain conditions.

Available games include classics such as Lemmings, Castle Wolfenstein, Zool and Ikari Warriors. The latter of which, incidentally, we've embedded below. Along with Zool. And James Pond 2: Robocod. As we just couldn't help ourselves.
