Microsoft Entertainment Pack Full PC Game Overview
Microsoft Entertainment Pack Download Free Full Game. The original Windows Entertainment Pack (WEP) is a collection of 16-bit casual computer games for Windows. These games were somewhat unusual for the time, in that they would not run under MS-DOS. Many of the games were later released in the Best of Microsoft Entertainment Pack. There were four Entertainment Packs in the original series. All games being 16-bit run on modern 32-bit versions of Windows but not on 64-bit Windows. Support for all versions of Microsoft Entertainment Pack ended on January 31, 2003.
FreeCell, Minesweeper, Taipei and Chess from this pack were later bundled with Windows.
Microsoft advertised Entertainment Packs for casual gaming on office computers. The boxes had slogans like «No more boring coffee breaks» and «Only a few minutes between meetings? Get in a quick game of Klotski». The marketing succeeded; Computer Gaming World in 1992 described the series as «the Gorillas of the Gaming Lite Jungle», with more than 500,000 copies sold.

For much of the early 1990s, the Gamesampler, a subset of the Entertainment Pack small enough to fit on a single high-density disk, was shipped as a free eleventh disk added to a ten-pack of Verbatim blank 3.5" microfloppy diskettes. Games on the sampler included Jezzball, Rodent's Revenge, Tetris, and Skifree. A «Best of» disk of several of the games was also available at times as a mail-in premium from Kellogg's cereals.
In the copies of Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 source code which leaked back in 2004, there are 32-bit versions of Cruel, Golf, Pegged, Reversi, Snake (Rattler Race), Taipei and TicTactics. However, FreeCell and Minesweeper have had official 32-bit versions bundled even with early versions of Windows NT. The original game developers of some of the games such as SkiFree, TriPeaks, WordZap now offer 32-bit versions.
