If you are nostalgic for this rainy and cold weekend, the relatively new site will throw you into the time tunnel and allow you to play some retro games and some more games – for free. Yes, it is completely legal.

If you expect Piepacker to convert your monthly subscription to PlayStation Plus or any other gaming service – start by saying no. However, while the range of games in it is reasonable today – with about 60 titles – it still includes some good games that will make you nostalgic. Kids in their nineties can enjoy a game of Earthworm Gym 2 or Worms World Party.

From my experience with the Piepacker site, the gaming experience is not bad overall – but there is room for improvement. I think this is relatively forgivable since it is a completely free beta. I ran some games like the Erworm Gym and the Worms ran smoothly, while the classic and seemingly less “heavy” game never stopped stumbling on some of the attempts I made to run it.
