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.

I have to say that Abandonia has gained a real pinball fan who contributes pinball game archives to the site. It is WolverineDK, who has this time supplied the Psycho Pinball.

This is yet another great pinball game all the lovers of the genre need to try.

It’s loud and colorful, smoothly animated with almost real physics on the ball and the ability to slam the machine from either side in order to prevent the ball from sliding where you don’t want it to go. You slam the machine with both shifts and deflect the ball with both control buttons.

Needles to say the game supports multiplayer and there’s even less need to say that the multiplayer option consists of a hot seat where you and up to three more friends have to take turns (can’t really imagine two people playing pinball simultaneously on the same table).

There’s naturally some variety of the tables, where you get different settings, different targets and different scoring system, but every one of them is fun it its own right. The sounds vary from table to table to create the appropriate feeling, so you’ll hear either lots of bubbles (maybe even bursting when the ball is sunk) or witches laughing with high pitched voices (probably at your bad performances, of which I’m sure you’ll have only few).

There are four tables altogether:

Trick or Treat: As the name itself suggests it’s a Halloween themed table with witches and carved pumping all around.

The Wild West: You’re a horse ridding, lasso swinging, six-shooter carrying … err … pinball ball?! Yup, yer aimin’ to shoot that there high score, you are partner!

The Abyss: It has nothing to do with the sci-fi movie of an alien ship being deep under the ocean’s surface… well, except for taking place deep under the ocean’s surface. So I guess the term sleeping with the fishes isn’t just another mob phrase (at least not in this case).

Psycho: Now here’s a real treat for you! Unlike the rest of the tables (you’ll see that when you select other tables you’ll get a message playing on the single table) this is a multi table game. Now this is the true unique feature of Psycho Pinball and it’s possible only here, on the Psycho table. That’s right, this is the table where you can leave the circus and land on any other of the previously mentioned three tables (which can really boost your high score).

All in all a very good pinball game that will certainly waste a lot of your time.



The game works in WinXP, but is so slow there’s no point in playing it. I suggest you play it in DOSBox, but you’ll need to speed things up to around 12000 cycles. Another thing is, that this game doesn’t seem to allow you to use any programs for managing DOSBox (so you’ll have to run DOSBox the hard way).

Step by step guide to run the game:

Seeing how some people have problems running this game I was asked to add this to the review (although everybody who is comfortable with DOSBox will know that you can change the mentioned things).

1. Download and install DOSBox (prefrebly the latest version).
2. Download and unzip the game Psycho Pinball. (there should be a folder named PP with all the files in it).
3. Put the PP folder directly on drive C: (so you'll have a folder called C:PP).
4. Run DOSBox (no frontends - just DOSBox).
5. Enter the following commands (press enter after each line of command):
mount c c:\
c:
cd pp
psycho
6. Enjoy the game.
