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.
Exclusive thanks go to BranjoHello who has reviewed this undying classic. The game itself is not available for download here, since it is sold legally by the copyright holders.
Happy New Year, fellow Abandonians!
What would be a better reason to celebrate the beginning of 2013 than presenting you a new game?
Local badass TotalAnarchy tracked down a copy of the Necronomicon, and summoned us a horror adventure from nowhere else but the dreaded, dark, twisted realm of H.P. Lovecraft. Prisoner of Ice was part of the Cthulhu franchise following games like Call of Cthtulhu: Shadow of the Comet, and Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of Earth.
If you're looking forward to a grim adventure around the world of mortals, traveling to places like the Antarctica or Buenos Aires, only to solve one of the greatest mysteries involving a chain of murders you've come to the right place.
Once more it's that magical time of the year, when gifts and joy are abound, and families reunite to celebrate the holidays and the spirit of giving.
Here at Abandonia, we'd like to remind our kind and loyal readers of all the good Christmas or Winter themed games we have available, in case you may have not noticed them before!
In Jazz Jackrabbit - Holiday Hare '95, the player once more has to guide the green jackrabbit with an attitude, Jazz, running and gunning his way through a short episode of Epic's wonderful side-scroller franchise.
Guiding the mischievous Lemmings in the Holiday Lemmings Pack will prove to be a tasty challenge for those who prefer a bit of thinking over action.
For those that prefer the thrills of a racing or driving game, look no further than Skyroads - Xmas Special, where you're in control of a futuristic vehicle gliding along on mysterious floating roads.
And finally, for the players who prefer the sports genre of games, there are the Winter Olympic themed games, such as The Games - Winter Challenge from Mindscape/Accolade, The Games - Winter Edition by Epyx, Winter Games by Action Graphics/Epyx and Winter Olympics - Lillehammer 94 from U.S. Gold.
In conclusion, I wish you Happy Holidays in the name of the entire staff, and hope that maybe, you'll find some fun with one of the aforementioned winter titles. :D
Have you been desperately searching for a game you played as a child, but just can't seem to be able to recall it's title, or do you vaguely remember something great that was on the cover CD of an old magazine you once had?
Well, whatever is the case, now you can ask for the help of our retro enthusiast old video game experts!
The Forgotten Games Bureau has opened recently. It is the place where you can post your thread to find your game. However, there are a set of rules established to help you find it, and most importantly, help us in the search. Be sure to read the quick guide before posting a thread, we guarantee doing so will get more attention to it, especially if you're giving as many details as possible.
Many thanks go to TheChosen who reviewed the games and provided the boxshots and Dishy who supplied the Windows version.
