on November 3, 2013 1:51 PM

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 users. You can find Blackthorne by visiting the downloadable games section through a 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.

Former genius and a woman of mystery and power, whose power is exceeded only by her mystery, Dana Abercrombie has been playing video games since birth (yes birth...we did say "genius"). Despite her secret desire of wanting to give it all up to become a gorgeous billionaire, Dana is most passionate about video games and films often times getting in many heated debates resulting in being thrown out of many gatherings. Despite having a degree in English AND Journalism (multi-tasking FTW!) from the University at Albany-SUNY, she is currently interested in perusing a degree at Yale Law School, because one should never give up on a dream of becoming a gorgeous billionaire...and knowing how to sue someone as a result of those heated debates
