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.

Game arcades were an important form of entertainment long before they started using computers to power up sophisticated games to play. After all, even Edison’s motion picture viewing machines were more or less a penny arcade attraction.

But there is a machine without which you simply cannot imagine an arcade and that’s the good old pinball machine, with its decades long tradition of producing weird sounds and forcing you to spend both time and money.

Apparently pinballs converted quite nicely from the classic tables into computerized version (there are many pinball games confirming this statement).

One of familiar names when talking about computerized pinballs is deffinetly Silverball, originally released in 1992. After three years on the market, the game was slightly modified and re-released in 1995 and that’s the version we’ll take a look at today (in the Silverball review by janm.l already on the site it’s mentioned as “Silverball Plus 2”).

Well, it seems that there really isn’t much difference between the both games, except for the two added tables you can play (Warbot, and Duel). Here’s a little overview of the tables prepared by WolverineDK (who is also the person you should thank for supplying the game archive):

Fantasy table is set in roleplaying setting (meaning dragons and other fantasy creatures are on the table).

Nova could be called a tribute to many 2d shooters, meaning there is a big space-jet near the bottom of the table and the game is set in space.

Blood table is also set in a fantasy setting, just like Fantasy.

Snooker Champ table is a Snooker Billiards themed table.

Odyssey is a Greek mythology themed table, with Atlas holding a pinball on his shoulders instead of the world.

Warbot is a futuristic robot themed table.

And finally Duel, which is a medieval/musketeer(ish) themed pinball table.
