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.

This has to be one of the most detailed historical strategy games ever made. It is based on the historical battles fought by Napoleon Bonaparte and his armies, including the famous battle of Waterloo. Some of you might think you know all there is to know about these battles, but you will soon learn you only know the tip of the iceberg. The game supplies you with extensive information about each type of unit, formation and weapon, and a background for every person in charge, detailing their name, family ties, rank, age, experience and more. The historical aspect of the game is truly magnificent. This game alone serves you enough material to complete a doctorate on Napoleon and his warfare!

Microprose has co-operated with many historians and experts in order to make Fields of Glory as realistic as possible. You can choose to play either Napoleon himself or his opposition. The objective in the game is, of course, to crush your enemies and see them driven off the battlefield, while minimising your own losses. This might seem easy enough, but you will soon learn that it is easier said than done. After the battle is over you see some statistics and receive your score.

You have three types of units; Artillery (cannons), Cavalry (horsemen) and Infantry (soldiers). Some of you might be familiar with these types of units from such games as Civilization and others in the genre, and therefore know that the difference between defeat and victory is to use the correct unit against the enemy (for instance, cavalry excel against infantry).

There are numerous formations in the game, and a cavalry charge can easily be defeated by use of the correct formation, so don't take anything for granted.

The game can be compared to a game of chess. For every attack there is a counter-attack. For every piece lost on the battlefield, another gains a superior position. It does not matter how many more units you have than your opponent. If the opposition knows all the capabilities of his units, he will win.

I must also say that strategy games are not my cup of tea, but I think those who like the genre will not be disappointed by this game.

We have changed the Archive to a preinstalled one that is in line with how we host our other games. You can now change the language in the setup.exe to English, French or German. Aren't you lucky people.
