Boxer – A DOS Emulator For Your Mac

If you want to catch up on tons of old DOS games on your Mac this is pretty much the greatest thing ever.

Boxer plays MS-DOS games on your Mac. It’s based on the robust DOSBox emulator, with a lot of magic sprinkled on top.

Run DOS programs from Finder. Wrap your games into tidy gameboxes that launch like Mac apps. Painlessly install games from CD—then bundle the CD with your game so you don’t even need it in the drive.

Don’t struggle with mounts and emulation settings; don’t nurse a greedy games database; don’t bang your head against a DOS prompt; just play your games. Boxer takes away the fuss and leaves the fun.

I installed Quake on my Macbook Pro. How weird is THAT?!

I haven’t tried it with gamepads, so I don’t know enough about how well it works with games like Commander Keen, or Out Of This World, or Flashback.

I can’t think of any other DOS games I’d like to play.
