FriendlyWare P.C. Arcade A set of 8 games that are designed to be played on the original IBM PC computer of the time. Everything uses ASCII graphics, so it even works on the MDA adapter. An easy-to-access Boss Key is included, which pops up a histogram with Friendlysoft-related data.

Most games are replicas of other popular games from the early 80s. There are variants of Pac-Man, Breakout, Frogger, Lunar Lander and Berzerk, as well as two different shooters and a PC Derby game.

Note that this is not the more extensive Friendlyware suite from 1987 which is already documented here, although both products are similar. [source:mobygames]
