The latest classic game to get the official freeware treatment is Remedy Entertainment's Death Rally, the much-loved 1996 top-down racing game.
In 2009, Remedy is proud to announce the free re-release, Death Rally for Windows. The original game, ported to run on modern PCs.
The basic idea behind Death Rally: win races, gather more money, buy upgrades to your vehicle. In between wreck your opponents, shoot your way through bystanders and keep the pedal to the metal!
Unfortunately the port doesn't the include multiplayer connectivity as it was from back in the day of modem-to-modem and IPX. But the singleplayer component is reportedly all in-tact, and hey, it's free!
