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.

Xixit, sometimes even known as Chain Reaction, is one of the most brilliant Tetris clones ever. Actually it’s not even a clone per-say. It took the concept of Tetris, but added a very nice and pleasant twist. The game kept the original addictiveness of Tetris, but also brought something new and fresh with it.

As you may imagine by the introduction, the game is all about blocks dropping down the screen. Again, you can navigate them and drop them faster and you need to arrange them in a certain order, so you can clear the lines they build at the bottom of the screen. The more lines you clear off, the more points you gain and the longer the game lasts. As soon as the screen is so filled up that another block can not start falling down, the game ends.

So far, so Tetris, you might say. It’s true, but unlike Tetris, where you needed to arrange the blocks according to their shape, you won’t need to worry about that anymore. No, your main worry will be the colors of the blocks. Each block has three parts and every part can have a different color. You need to get at least three parts of the same color in line (either vertically, horizontally or diagonally) in order to clear the line. The above blocks will then start falling down.

It’s, so to say, a colorful version of Tetris.

I guess there’s no need to say then, that this game has colorful graphics, but then again, in 1995 it was very uncommon to have a computer which didn’t support 256 color VGA graphics.

The sounds are nothing special, but they won’t start going on your nerves, so you needn’t switch off the speakers, still you might prefer to put on some favorite song of yours and turn the game sounds off. You won’t need them anyway; they’re just an addition (and make a somewhat solid use of the soundcard).

So if you like Tetris style games and would like to try something fun and quite original (even if strongly familiar) I’d say Xixit is just the thing for you. Highly recommended!
