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.

Outer Heaven
Shhh, what's that? Is there someone hiding in the bushes? Wait, there's a cardboard box moving by itself. Suspicious... Actually it's the most suspicious thing I ever saw in my life! Hey, should we shoot it? -Nah, it's probably just a raccoon anyways. *Solid Snake reaches enemy base entrance. Mission Successful!

A new game on Abandonia. This time it's the DOS port of Hideo Kojima's MSX stealth game, Metal Gear, a title that gave birth to an immense universe which lives on even today, with a scheduled release for Metal Gear Solid: Rising in the future, for currentgen platforms including the PC. The current generation of games are titled Metal Gear Solid, but there are also several spinoffs on PSP called Metal Gear Ac!d, and who knows, they might even make a Metal Gear Strawberry.

Big thanks to MikeK for an extensive review explaining where this unfaithful port fails, and to thebigboss94ita for the archive. The gold will be delivered right away!

Take me to your leader!
Because I want to show them these wonderful boxshots for Alien Legacy! A big thank you to the one and only Geezer for providing us with these. Now take your time, browse them all, and hopefully they will whet your appetite for this huge science fiction strategy game. And of course, it's available right here at your friendly local gaming galaxy - Abandonia.

Howdy pardner!
Why don't you mosey on over here and let me tell you about the wonderful extras update we have for you today. The baddest gunslinger in the west, Luchsen has provided us with the design document for one of my personal favourites - Al Lowe's Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist.

This 1993 adventure game has it all - cowboys, pretty school ma'ams, strange Ghandi-esque ant lovers, missing body parts and of course, the titular hero, Freddy Pharkas. This game is full the humour that made Al Lowe famous (he is the creator of Leisure Suit Larry after all!) And luckily for you, it is available right here at the ranch, Abandonia.

All the world's a stage...
But the stars are where the real action happens! Today, one of our very own lovely admins, Dave has provided us with the level codes for the 1993 sci-fi shooter - Alien Breed.

A 1/10 Second Victory
You want to be number one on the circuit, number one in the standings. I can feel it in your eyes! But there's something more important than that: the speed, the adrenaline rushing when you pass an opponent, the gamble when challenging a curve... It's all in this great racing simulation from Papyrus - IndyCar Racing.

Heady takes the spotlight now for his awesome review. He wanted to showcase this game in the best way possible, and so he added a full set of boxshots as well.

Death and Decay
You drive your car on a deserted road, when suddenly a dark figure appears in front of you. You crashed into a nearby tree. After you woke up your brother was missing, and in front of you a creepy old Victorian mansion, waiting for you to reveal its secrets. Come on in!

Sometime ago I reviewed the DOS version of this game. Behold the 3.X remake of Uninvited. You're going to die!

Don't cheat on me, you stinky goblin!
Puzzle games can be fun, until you are stuck. Today we give you a remedy for that situation to a game called Gobliiins. It's not a complete solution, but a set of codes to each stage of the game.

We cannot host this game, as it is still being sold, but to cheer you up - we have updated also screenshot gallery with new pictures of lovely Gobliiins :)
