Following is a list of Apple IIGS games. While backwards compatible for running most Apple II games, the Apple IIGS has a native 16-bit mode with support for graphics, sound, and animation capabilities that surpass the abilities of the earlier Apple II. The machine is part of the 16-bit home computer gaming revolution of the mid 1980s to early 1990s, competing directly with the Amiga and Atari ST.
