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.

There is a little anecdote behind how Freddy came to life: Al Lowe was discussing how a western computer game could be fun. In the process, he tried to pronounce "farmer" and "rancher" at the same time. It came out "farmer-cist" and thus "Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist" was born.

Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist is a great adventure game made by Sierra in 1992. It takes place in Coarsegold, California (a former Gold Rush town in the old west) and you play the role of Freddy Pharkas, former gunslinger who became a pharmacist.

Freddy was just living his life in peace when Coarsegold was suddenly threatened by series of troubles which the citizens were unable to stop. It's up to you to save Coarsegold using only your wits and some creativity. During the game, you will need to have "The Modern Day Book of Health and Hygiene" which comes with the original game, but you can download it from the extras (it is titled as Manual).

The graphics are nice and the music fits quite nicely with the game's setting. The characters (the closeups) are well drawn and the backgrounds look fine too.

If you are a true Sierra fan you should not miss this game, and if you are not, you should not miss it either. It's simply a good, funny and entertaining game. (or as the Computer Gaming World called it: "The Blazing Saddles of computer games").
