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.

Have you ever dreamed about scoring a hat-trick? To be a marvelous striker that can bypass the goalkeeper three times in one game? Well, with the help of this game, you can try!

Hat Trick was developed in 1984 by Atari Inc. It started its life as a coin-op game, then in 1987 it has was ported to PC, C-64 and some other platforms.

The game is really simple. Your team consists of only two players - goalkeeper and a skater. Interesting thing is that you control both of them at the same time. Goalkeeper moves only up and down near the goal and skaters can move around whole ice-ring. When your "on-field" player moves up or down, the goalkeeper does the same. One thing that could be considered annoying in the beginning is sliding. Hockey is played on ice, so it's a plus for realism, but you need to get the feel of it before you can master Hat Trick.

Graphics are simple. Players are slightly animated and the whole playfield is shown on one screen - no scrolling needed. A nice touch is that when players move, they sometimes they leave scratches on the ice. These are then removed by a special machine during breaks between periods.

You can choose to play with computer or with another person. Since network play is not supported, there is a good chance that sparks will start flying between players, like in a real game of hockey. Think about that before inviting your buff friend for a match.

I like old games and their simplicity. That is why I give Hat Trick a score of 4. I believe that playability of this game can be as big as newest high-end graphic version of EA NHL.

Controls:
Numpad + zero to shoot

The game works on XP, but it's impossible to play. You lose the match in less than a second. With DOSBox You should lower DOSBox cycles below 1000 to get the right speed of "Hat Trick"
