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 game's name reflects its nature pretty accurately. It is truly megalomaniacal when it comes to addictiveness or the time it requires from the player. It has been ported to all most popular gaming platforms that existed in the early ninetees. These include Amiga, Genesis, Atari ST and PC. Some may argue that the versions differ in quality due to better graphics or more intuitive controls, but I believe its the gameplay that counts the most, and it is the same in all versions.

So, you're probably wondering what is this game is about in the first place. I'm not going to retell the whole introduction sequence here, but I'll give you the basics. You are a god and you have a designated tribe which you control. But you are not alone; there are also 3 other gods controlling their tribes on the same planet, and you are fighting the other gods so that your tribe would become the most powerful one in the world. You will oversee the development of your tribe from the time of the wheel all the way to the discovery of nuclear power.

The game is split into epochs. Each epoch consists of several missions that you must accomplish in order to get a secret word for the next epoch. This basically means that you will have to complete an entire epoch before you can actually „save“ your game. This can be pretty frustrating as an epoch can consist of many missions, so I suggest you start playing bigger ones in the morning :) There is another aspect of this game you should be careful about. Each epoch you are granted 100 people, and for each mission you choose a number of people you will start playing with. You should carefully choose this as it is important that you use as little people as possible for easier missions, in order to save them for the harder ones.

In each mission you will have to watch over 5 things. These are research, attack, defence, breeding and mining. The object of the game is to assign the people in the best possible way in order to achieve maximum efficiency. The more people you have working in a certain area, the faster this area develops. So, the more non-workers you have, the faster your population will grow, the more people you have researching, the faster you will get new inventions and so on. This might sound easy, but its extremely challenging. With time, you will gain confidence and try to start the missions with insanely small amounts of people, so you can basically make the game as challenging as you want it to be.

But enough with the spoilers. I suggest you give it a shot and see how you do. This game is very mentally challenging and if you give it some time to get accustomed to, it will keep you hooked for months to come. The concept of Mega Lo Mania is very original and intelligent, and it has been flawlessly executed in form of a game. The only reason why I give it a 4 mark is because I find the mission saving incapability very irritating, but still, who could resist playing god, even for a day!
