The first video game about AdLib SPU was released in 1987.

Sierra On-Line, Electronic Arts and Accolade has published most of these games

The Ad Lib company and the original AdLib Music Synthesizer Card were short lived. Nevertheless, Ad Lib sound from the original card became a defacto industry standard. Other cards, such as the Creative Labs Sound Blaster, emulated AdLib sound with hardware (even on systems that were not fully compatible with the non-AdLib card) and Ad Lib sound could be emulated with software (even through the PC speaker) with passable results (better than no sound) on reasonably fast systems.

DOSBox uses emulated Ad Lib sound.
