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.

Project Nomad
Project Nomad has been requested in the forum a few times, so I think there�ll be some happy faces among you today. This space opera has a galaxy of exotic worlds waiting to be explored and a plot that just begs to be played. Can you hear the call to board your spaceship? Where�s my suit. . ? Once again, Sebatianos has proven himself to be one of the hardest working members with a fine review and eye-catching screenshots.

Oh no - More Lemmings
A bit late with the update today, but here we are. Radiv has supplied us with OH NO! More Lemmings! I think we are getting close to a complete Lemmings collection. Have fun with it!

Test Drive - Triple Pack
Today's update is a racey one (or three in one): Test Drive - Triple Pack. Radiv X has given some compelling reasons why we should get behind the steering wheel of a porsche and burn rubber. Some attractive screenshots offer even more enticement. The games are Test Drive, Test Drive II - The Duel and Test Drive III - The Passion.

Elite Plus
Elite Plus is a space trader simulation with excellent VGA graphics. It is an updated version of the classic Elite and is now considered by far the better of the two. Thanks and popcorn go out to punch999 for a terrific review and screenshots.

Zone 66
Remember song lyrics that went, 'You can get your kicks on Route 66'? Today, for your enjoyment, we have a game called Zone 66 which will supply plenty of kicks, especially if you're into overhead shooters. This one is rumoured to be the most under-rated of its genre and features 360 degree freedom of movement. The impressive review and screenshots were supplied by Einherjar. I altered not a word of his review, and for edit-happy me that's unusual. Great work, Einherjar - and, of course, a crunchy snack is coming your way. ;)

A Mind Forever Voyaging
Today we have a text-based game for you, courtesy of JaG. He was a fellow updater on EchoRing while it was still up, and to my surprise and excitement, he decided to join our cause, and help us out with the site! So a big welcome to him, and a big praise for the flawless review he supplied. You'll be reading some more soon ;) Well, back to the game, it is an Infocom title called A Mind Forever Voyaging which is a must for all text-based games fans! Happy typing!

Gold Rush
Gold Rush is another cool Sierra game and has some historical value � not only for the authentic and detailed recreation of the period in which it was set - but also because it was one of the first adventure games that was truly replayable. Our own evil genius, Fawfulhasfury, has written the ace review and supplied the screenshots. Popcorn, marshmellows or choc chip cookies, Fawful?

Castle Wolfenstein
Was Castle Wolfenstein the best action game ever made? Certainly not in terms of sophisticated graphics. Yet some argue that the great ideas incorporated into the full-on action gameplay provoke an adrenalin rush not equaled by many games today. In his well-thought out review, Jag gives a technical overview and tells of the history and the power contained in this revolutionary game.

Aleshar - World of Ice
Hi all! I'm finally seeing some sun outside, after who knows how long, so I'll make this a quick update and try to get some tan ;) Einherjar has made an excellent review of Aleshar: World of Ice, an RPG game published in 1997. by Hypothermia. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but give it a try nontheless - and be sure to read the manual first :)

Oscar
Want to have some fun? Of course, you do! (With a passing nod to that inescapable glass of rye in Return To Zork.) Well, today's trip down memory lane is not to Zork but to Oscar - although not the famous awards. Read Tulac's helpful review to find out more about this top arcade game and also catch an eyefull of the brilliant screenshots he has supplied to accompany his review.

Home Alone 2 - Lost In New York
A platform action game with great graphics, Home Alone 2 is based on the film of the same name. The game, screenshots and neato review were all supplied by evil genius and very huggable guy, Fawful. (Don't tell him I said that...might ruin his reputation.)

Incredible Machine 2 will have you enthralled for hours assembling weird and wonderful machines. This wacky puzzle game is part of the Incredible Machine series of which we have another two onsite. Yamcha 565656 has supplied us with the game archive, some nice screenshots and a tantalising review. He�s definitely earned his choc chip cookies. Thanks, Yamcha! :)

13-01-2005
There's a huge puzzle/quest game with fantastic graphics waiting for you onsite - Hodj 'n' Podj. The box for the game came with this description: A wacky buncha games in a wacky kinda world. Enough said. The game, stunning screenshots and meticulously researched review all came from my fellow Mod and very nice guy, Omuletzu. Mods Rule!

Today we have the biggest game update ever - a humongous review accompanied by 12 phenomenal screenshots - courtesy of The Fifth Horseman who supplied us with all the necessary ingredients. Game in question is Castlevania and, with all provided, I'm sure you can easily decide whether or not its your cup of tea! Enjoy!
