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.
Published in 1994 by Disney Software, this game made its way to the top very quickly. This was mostly thanks to excellent graphics and sounds. It was one of the first games to feature digitized music, the beginning of the well known theme from Aladdin, "A Whole New World". Also, throughout the game there is plenty of great music which adds a lot to the overall atmosphere.
However, despite its looks, this game lacks gameplay. Over the first few days it's fun, but after that it gets boring quite quickly. One of the reasons for this is the fact that the game has to be played from the beginning every time (there is no save/load option). There are so-called "restart points", which we've seen in quite a few games. This means that when you get to a certain point you start from there when you lose a life.
The point of the game is to save princess Jasmine. On your way you encounter many different enemies. To defend yourself, you're equipped with apples which you can throw at your enemies and a sword which only works at close range. In conclusion, this game scores high on both graphics and sound, but gameplay is not very satisfactory.
The sound may not work properly when the game is started from Windows.
