Last Sunday I decided to try and build an x86 (namely the 8086) emulator in Silverlight to play the Digger game.
This turned out to be a more time-consuming job than I expected.
Luckily, one of the first gaming platforms (Chip8/SChip) is relatively very easy to emulate.
Few hours later I had a working prototype already! This is a very good starter for people like me and definitely very exciting!.
Also there are a lot of classics for it – Tetrises, Pacmans, Racing, Pong, even Pipe Dream.
