Do we have any “old schoolers” out there???  Does Jones in the Fast Lane ring a bell?  Yeah…. I thought so!

Jones in the Fast Lane is for sure on my list of top games from the early 90’s.  Jones is a Life SIM released in 91 I think??? by Sierra.  Although Jones is fairly simple, it’s quite addictive and is 100% responsible for countless late nights for my buddy and I.  Hmm.  Now that I’m thinking of it… I think this is the first PC game I ever played and possibly one of the reasons I converted over to the PC from my Commodore 64? Wow…

Anyway, if you want to take a trip down memory lane, or try out Jones in the Fast Lane for the first time, you will be happy to know that a Flash Developer has ported the game.  Here’s the link:

Since I can’t guarantee how long the link will stay valid, another option would be to just grab the old game here:

Jones in the Fast Lane Game Download

Since Jones is an old DOS game, you will need to get a DOS emulator.  Personally, I just grabbed a copy of DosBox, installed it and was up and playing the game in about 30 seconds.

For those of you not familiar with Dosbox, all you need to do is launch the shortcut after install and mount the Jones folder using the command:

mount c c:\jones\

Then goto the C drive you just mounted and run Sierra.bat.  From there the game should launch and you should be golden!

Like I said, the game is addicting so make sure you have about an hour, so you don’t miss any appointments :)

    Thanks so much for this! I have been looking for his game forever! It was the first game I played on a computer :) I still think it’s better than any of the newer, way more confusing games.

    Just wanted to say a quick ‘Thank you very much’ – like many others, I remember playing this with my brother and sister when I was young. Loved this game (still do!)

    I can’t seem to get the link to work on the download for Jones. The flash download works but I want it on my computer. I have windows 10 and I have downloaded the dosbox but when I type “mount c c: \jones\” in the dosbox I get the message “drive cannot be found”. I tried to download the link but it just takes me back to the same page again. What can I do. I have always loved this game and so have my kids (all grown now). I hope you can help me get it on installed on my computer. Thanks
