What if you can play a Microsoft Flight Simulator for free and from the browser? Well, of course. It is the first four games in the series that you have the option to try right now by simply opening a new tab. You have to click here.
Under the name of history, we find this project programmed by Sebastian Macke. It is intended to publicize the history of Microsoft Flight Simulator through the first four deliveries developed by the company between 1982 and 1989.
Once you have entered, you will see that you can select the version you want to play in the lower right corner. The thing does not have much mystery, since this version for the browser can be played with keyboard and mouse without problems. It is also compatible with mobile devices, so you can play games from wherever you want.
The last installment, released a few days ago, looks impressive, but the one that opened the saga in 1982 is very different. When it comes to games developed during the 80s, no one expects realistic graphics. Logically the machines of the time gave what they gave for. And everything is lovely like that.
In this video, you can see the graphic evolution of the saga from 1982 to 2020:
Where realism was sought from the beginning is in the controls and the behavior of the aircraft, so indeed, you can have a good time trying to carry out the flights in an optimal way.
If you want to know more details about the project history, such as that everything is programmed in C or emulates an 8086, you can go to its page on GitHub.
