Blizzard’s Blackthorne Is Available for Free
While you’re busy clipping coupons and readying yourself for the Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday sales, here’s a deal that you can afford just in time for the holiday season. Blizzard Entertainment is offering a free digital copy of its 1994 platformer, Blackthorne, for all Battle.net users. You can find Blackthorne by visiting the downloadable games section through a Battle.net account and scrolling to Classic Games.
Fans of the original will easily notice the only changes made to the classic is fine-tuning the keyboard controls, making the game PC-friendly. Blizzard has preserved the original look and feel of the game, even bearing the Blizzard Classic Arcade splash screen.
