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 Abandonia.com. 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.

Utility section is (finaly) UP!! :) You will not find a bunch of useless stuff there, just the things you need. A boot floppy executable image file and sound blaster emulation drivers for DOS! If you have troubles starting games, that's the place to visit! :)

One addition today, and one comming up tomorrow! You might have guessed which game this is about from the picture on the left...It's The Lost Vikings! A phenomenal action / strategy / adventure game. It's all that, and more, packed in one unforgettable game. You can find it in the action section so quit reading and start downloading! :)

Two excellent games added to Adventure and Unsorted sections. First one is Jones in the Fast Lane where you get to control a character that starts out as poor and uneducated, and your role is to work his way up the social ladder :) The second one is one of the best pinball games ever - Pinball Dreams. Have fun!

After a month of relaxation, sea and sun here comes an update! Xenon 2 Megablast was added to the action section, and 16 (!!) new reviews have been written. I am hoping that in the near future I will finaly write reviews for all games that can be found on Abandonia! Enjoy! :)

It's been a while again, I know, and I'm not proud of it! That's why I have reviewed and uploaded 2 brilliant new games, just for your pleasure. :) Transport Tycoon can be found in the simulation section, and you can dig up Battle Bugs under strategies. I'm sure you will love both of these games, even if you've already played them long ago.

Besides new games, I have also re-optimized all the game thumbnails so the pages should load faster, especially with slower modems. Last, but not least, I have a new associate who will be working on the updates with me, so hopefully you should see more of them pretty soon! :)

We're on fire! Three updates in three days. I wonder how long we'll be able to maintain such efficiency. Today we have another treat for you, and its called Sensible Soccer! A fast paced, fun soccer game of our youth :) You can find it in the sports section. Enjoy!

And our update streak continues as we blow away another smasher - Body Blows. Seeing this game's menu without playing it is a sensation for itself, especially if you've played it before. You can find it in the Action section. Njoy!

There's no stopping us! :) Another update, and it can hardly get any more brilliant than this! Castle of Dr. Brain can be found in the Unsorted section. You'd be a fool if you didn't check it out! Its simply awesome! :)
