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.

Locomotion is a simple railroad operating game. Actually it’s nothing spectacular. The first time I encountered something similar was while playing Donald Duck’s Playground (one of the side-games to be exact) and I played this (again as a side-game) when I got the Lost Mind of Dr. Brain game.

Still this does not have to mean the game is all bad. It can actually be quite entertaining.

You need to operate the railroad switches and navigate the train engines from one point to another without colliding. They’ll stop at the blocked off switch or at a signal light and they’ll bounce and reverse direction if getting to the wrong station.

The time and number of possible collisions are limited from level to level and once either one is up, you loose the game.

The sounds are basic and the graphics are functional, colorful, but nothing special. All in all a below average simple entertainment with not much originality. But the game has two features which redeem it a little. First is the language option. It’s a German game, so it’s possible to play in either German or English language (not a big difference though). The other is the editor, where you can set your own tracks and play your own puzzles, or exchange them with friends to challenge them.

Now for the final score. Seeing how some magazines with professional reviewers gave this game as low a mark as 19% and on the other hand others (also professional reviewers) gave it as high a mark as 84%. Personally I like the idea that this game includes trains (simply love them), but do feel the overall gameplay is a letdown for 1992, especially since I’ve seen this in side-games before. Still the option of editing maps and making your own levels is a very convincing argument to give this game a higher mark, for being an enjoyable and somewhat addictive brain teaser.
