Old Windows 95 built in games


Hey does anyone know the names of all the games that were given to you in Windows 95?

For example, in windows xp you get Solitaire.

I'm specifically looking for the name of the tank game, but I would like all the names of the games.

Thanks!

I can't remember a tank game, unless you mean "MineSweeper."
The others were "Solitaire", "Hearts", and "FreeCell."

On Windows 95? Those aren't the games I'm aiming at if they are in windows 95. I swear when I was really young and went to my cousins house that he had games on windows 95 that were built into it like solitaire is now.

Would the "tanks" be hovercraft? There was demo called Hover in a folder on the CD.

Nope, that's not it but close. It was like green lines as rocks ands stuff, and the background was all black. So basically the game had 2 colors, green and black.

That would be the Microsoft Entertainment Pack ver 1.0, available on a floppy back when Win95 was released. It usually came with a purchased computer.

That does have a lot of games I remember playing, but maybe I'm blind but I didn't find the tank game on it. I looked on the wiki page that had a list of every game in that pack, and none of them were it.

Well there was also the Entertainment Pack Puzzle Edition that was included in the Plus! GamePack that came out when Windows Me was released. That had some of the older stuff as well.

Then there was the original Arcade, Return of Arcade, and Revenge of Arcade. I think I recall that an older Works Suite came with Arcade on it. If you had that, you might have thought it came with Windows 95 but was actually just installed with Works (or even Office).

I don't recognize which game you mean but it might be somewhere in that mix. Don't forget that Encarta also had some games with it. But , Windows itself? Really just the few to get you started.
