Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

Master Trick
Prepare for something special, as one of the few card games with a personality before Poker Night at the Inventory, makes its appearance on the site. Klondike Pro tasks you to become the best player in the Old West in the game of "duplicate solitaire", and features a rather lengthy written story placed in the heyday of the Gold Rush.

Also in this update, we're glad to add the boxshots and the manual for Super Solvers: OutNumbered!, from one of the more popular and fondly remembered edutainment series among retro gamers. A big thanks to Tanara Kuranov for supplying the review and all additional content in this update.

Let's Play Guess the Villain
This is not about the well-being of the Forgotten Realms anymore. This time it's personal. The heroes have been cursed to wear azure tattoos of an unknown nature. With these bonds the enemies can control their every move. The party must now survive a world submerged in blood and conspiracies in order to regain their freedom.

Curse of the Azure Bonds is the second installment in SSI's Goldbox game series based on Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. It continues most of the conventions set by Pool of Radiance in both gameplay and design. Read on to learn what are the differences. Big thanks to Deuce Traveler for reviewing this gem, to Vanshilar for supplying the archive and of course Geezer for the amazing amount of extras that comes with the game.

Hero rescues a damsel - this time in medieval Korea
We have something very rare: Korean action game from 1996 called Jisaeneun Dal. Fight with only a wooden stick against tons of bad guys and rescue your beloved. Surely not best of the kind, but a rare game that is hard to find is always something interesting.

A cup of old Korean tea (and some cookies) goes to our contributor derboo, and thanks again for bringing us more games from the east.

Monster exterminators wanted!

The city of Phlan, once a flourishing trade port, is becoming overrun with monsters of all sorts... and rumor has it that they have amassed a quite spectacular hoard from pillaging the city! This is where you come in, brave adventurers: drive them out of the city and loot their coffers... or die trying.

Pool of Radiance was the first of many Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, or AD&D for short, role-playing games published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. back in the day, a series that would become known as the famed Gold Box games, named after the gold-colored boxes they came in.

So, dear player, look up why negative Armor Class is suddenly good and what the heck THAC0 means, roll your die, and go kill some monsters and steal all their money!

Is this real...? Or is this just... unreal?

It was a long time ago that we surprised you with a new game, but here it is! It's not exactly THAT game with the same name from Epic MegaGames, but sure it's epic in it's own way.

If you are ready for some old fashioned hack-and-slash action against dragons, dinosaurs, and polar bears 1991 style, here it is! Immerse yourself in a world of ice, forests, and vile beasts - and ride a flame spewing lizard above the world!

We would like to thank marko_river for the excellent and unbiased review and the beautiful screenshots, oldschool DOS sensei Ermuli for the archives, and local treasure hunter Geezer for a scan of the original manual, a disk image of the original diskettes, and of course two high resolution boxshots of the jewel case.
