Desktop Games is a retro game platform for Windows, and the system is designed with several different variations for the player to select from. This app delivers games in a number of themes, including 3D adventure games, sports, math games, drawing games, and many others. These games are ideal for the whole family since they are built to be fun and engaging without being overly complex or inappropriate for younger ages. The platform is built with a programming system called Peter's.
