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 was released by Silicon Knights in March 1992 and was voted the best multiplayer game in 1992 by Computer Game Review.

Five empires descend upon the neutral and strategically important planet of Orion, in order to claim it as their own. The days of conventional warfare are over, and the age of the cybernetic warrior is at hand.

Cyber Empires is a mix of strategy and battle action. First, it has a strategic section where you build factories and cyborgs, gain control over new countries, plan your next moves, schedule attacks and build defences. Once you and the computer have completed your turns, it's time for action: attack, defence, or occupation.

To win the game, you need to defeat your enemies with your armies of cyborgs. The size of the cyborgs varies from the smallest type, called Mercury, to Titan, which is the largest one available. All cyborgs carry various weapons in their arsenal; they can be controlled either by your keyboard or joystick, and you can issue various orders to your cyborgs before the battle begins and set how strictly they will adhere to them.

In the early, tactical part of the game, you start with one country (at a random location) whose capital is marked by a flag. During each turn, the capital will earn you income from that country. You start with 1,210,000 credits, which will be enough to build a factory and buy at least one cyborg.

There are different environments in which a battle can occur, for example arctic, lava, forest, city, or desert. Each terrain has certain features which can affect the outcome of a battle: In the city, there are lots of buildings you can blast your way through, in the forest you will need to blast trees that are in your way, while in lava regions you might end up walking on lava, and thus risk having your cyborg overheat. You can also build fortifications in the countries that you control. They will be well-armed and will automatically fire at enemy units. Fortifications are good at defending vital countries both at the beginning and later on in the game. Note that you need at least one cyborg in the country for the fortification to work.

There are three different game types you can play:
Complete Campaign - tactics and action.
Strategy Campaign - tactics only.
Battle Practice - you can try battle action right away.

You can also set the AI's level of intelligence and whether or not there'll be a fog of war.

I remember playing this game on my Amiga quite a lot when I was younger. To this day it is one of my favourite old games released for the Amiga (alongside with Moonstone and Super Frog). I won't give any more clues as to how to advance; it's your turn now.

The game is started by running the file cyber.com, and if you want to change the key settings, you need to run keyinit.exe.
