Blizzard Re-Releases Blackthorne for Free
Ah, Blackthorne. Whether you played the SNES or MS-DOS version, odds are mention of the 1994 classic brings back memories of pressing your back against a wall while gripping a pump-action shotgun.
Blizzard has re-released Blackthorne on Battle.net as a free download. You can get your hands on it by logging into your B.net account, clicking on “Download Game Clients,” and then locating Blackthorne under “Classic Games.” Make sure you have enough free disk space, though — this is a 6.1 MB download. You may have to save it across multiple floppy disks.
Platform your way across 17 levels, fill sprites with pixelated lead, and listen to the nostalgic tune of 90s MIDI music. I wonder if Rock n’ Roll Racing and The Lost Vikings will be next…
