Let’s face it. Games in Windows 7 and Windows 8 are pretty lame. But I remember playing 3D Pinball Space Cadet on Windows 2000 at work years ago – wasting plenty of time. If you miss this classic game, here’s how to get it rolling on the latest version of Windows.
First download the 3D Space Cadet executable file. You don’t need to extract it, just double-click the WinRAR file and click Run.
Then install it to the default location, so it shows up in Games like it did in legacy versions of Windows.
That’s it. You’ll find it in Games of the Start menu.
Launch it, and relive this Windows classic game. Just make sure to turn down the sound if playing it at work.
3D Pinball Space Cadet works on both 32 & 64-bit versions of Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1. I also just tested it on Windows 10, and it works without a hitch! Have fun!
