Miss Minesweeper and Spider Solitaire? Get Windows 7 games in Windows 10 now!
One of the things that I have spent almost half of my life doing is playing Windows 7 games. I was never a hardcore gamer as they call it and instead preferred to give company to the in-built games of the Windows version I was using.
The Minesweeper and Solitaire are the most well known games in the world. Despite being so apparently simple, these Windows 7 games have had more popularity than many of the games that we come across nowadays. The reason is because these were one of the earliest in-built games that almost every Microsoft Windows version contained from Windows 3.0 to Windows 7.
I still remember how joyous I was when the Microsoft Solitaire got upgraded to Spider Solitaire, although I never became a very good player at it. Whatever mental intelligence I have in me has been polished deeply by Minesweeper. It definitely is one of the most mind exercising games to date. For an average person like me, getting through a 10×10 Minesweeper is no easy task.
When Minesweeper and Solitaire started to become a little monotonous to users, Microsoft developers came up with another bundle of built-in games together with the aforementioned ones. The new bundle was included in Windows Vista for the very first time and it included Chess Titans, Mahjong Titans and Purble Palace.
Chess Titans was the most popular of the newer set of Windows 7 games. Not developed by Microsoft, it was developed by Oberon games. It could be played with both the keyboard and mouse. It was the first inbuilt chess game ever to be included in Windows. The game also included intuitive features for that time such as 3-D rotation and player vs player plus player vs computer.
Windows 8 and the subsequent builds decided to ditch these games altogether due to unknown reasons. However, if you miss these old amigos badly, this is how you can get them back in Windows 10.
