Search for games by video mode

Games are listed by supported video modes. Games that have native support for more than one standard are listed under each supported standard. Video modes that have more than one resolution can be searched by resolution, or all games can be viewed by clicking on the name of the standard.

Text modes

ASCII refers to games that use text modes rather than graphics modes. CGA supports only Modes 0 through 3, and MDA and Hercules support only Mode 7. All newer graphics standards are backwards-compatible with all of these text modes (except MCGA, which doesn't support Mode 7).

Mode 00h 40×25×16gray text*
Mode 01h 40×25×16c text
Mode 02h 80×25×16gray text*
Mode 03h 80×25×16c text
Mode 07h 80×25 mono text

* These modes display in grayscale on a composite monitor and color on an RGB monitor.

Any graphics modes that exceed the capabilities of a VGA graphics card are called Super VGA (SVGA). VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE) defined 23 graphics and 5 text modes that allowed for higher resolutions and/or color depths. As of the 2.0 specification, no further modes will be defined, allowing software to use any resolution, provided the graphics card is capable of displaying it.
