I got a very slow PC.
Here, we list the games that can run OK in slow PCs.

Let me start. In Steam, the game "Dead Maze" works OK with slow PCs.
"Dead Maze is a 2D MMO game set in a destroyed contemporary world, filled with zombies. "

To get it : https://store.steampowered.com/app/667890/Dead_Maze/


Please show us here the games that can work OK even on slow and old PCs. Very Happy

Games for slow machines:

XBill AKA BillyBasher works on a 600MHz machine.

If you want stuff for really-really slow machines:

There is the text only adventure game where you start out outside a pumphouse. It had many names and came in many versions.

There was a game called "kingdom" where basically you did the yearly budget for the kingdom and lost if you got a bad plague, drought, flooding, war, "the worm", rats or a bunch of other things.

If there is a lot of interest, I might port my ZX80 "startrek" game into a more modern form. It used "ASCII art" like graphics. Unlike most such games, the "Klingons" moved and were "smart".
I used some tricks to make a space that was huge with no repeat in the pattern of stars etc. Because there were only 10 things that could move, the space you saw was generated from your location rather than stored in full.
