Play this and be the geek of the week? Nah, just kidding, I’m a treky myself, but still I found it hard to answer some of the questions. I mean, keeping all of the episode names in your head and remembering all the quotes and so on. It does seem really geeky.
Still it’s a great way for different fans to test their knowledge of the early seasons of Star Trek TNG (if you ask me the best Star Trek series out there).
The game is fully keyboard controlled (by pressing the hot keys).
As you start the game you’ll get some sounds and you’ll see the category of the question. There will be the countdown bar over the questions. As long as it’s not empty you get a bonus for an answer (if it’s correct). You can’t miss more than four answers (with the fifth wrong answer it’s game over for you).
To select an answer press the number next to it. There can be two or four options to choose from.
In the top left corner you can see the number of questions you’ve got so far and the number of correct answers.
If you answer correctly, you’ll also see a simple comment on the question (like in which episode a quote was said, or why this happened).
All in all a very straight forward game with no graphics, sounds that would be better left out and all the charm of a school exam, but at least on your favorite subject, if you’re a Star Trek fan (if not, you really better stay away from this game).
You can play the game in WinXP (it will play slowly enough) but the sounds will really hurt your ears, but if you decide to use DOSBox you should slow it down to some 20 cycles (extremely low).
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.
