Budokan is an early Electronic Arts game, dating back to 1989. It was obvious right away that, with such productions, EA was bound to become what it is today: one of the biggest game-producing companies. There is nothing missing in this game. From the beginning to the end, it is programmed perfectly, has unbelievable graphics and is absolutely addictive.
There are four disciplines to choose from: karate, kendo, nunchaku and bo. There is one extra dojo where you can choose your own weapon and fight against a computer or player with a different one. In all disciplines, you choose whether you want to practise by yourself or play against a computer at a difficulty level you have chosen. Each dojo is different and has a different animated background that is simply wonderful.
The game creates such an atmosphere that you really feel as if you were on top of some intact mystic mountain. When you get bored practising, or playing against the computer, and after you perfect your skills at all dojos, you can try a tournament. In tournaments there are short descriptions of the players, along with their pictures and a list of their abilities. It is really incredible how all that fits into just 700 Kb of code. Budokan is a truly magnificent production by EA.
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.
