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.

Paperboy is a simple yet fun no-brainer game. You play the role of a boy trying to get his newspapers to the right houses whilst avoiding obstacles. Walls, cars, fences, rolling tyres and even people block your way. You have 5 lives to use, each time you hit something a life goes. You also have a limited number of newspapers, and you can pick up more by riding over the piles on the left side of the street. When you ride by a house and ‘subscriber’ appears on your status bar at the bottom, throw a newspaper. You get more point by hitting certain areas, such as the mailbox, front door or the trashcan.

The graphics are either EGA or CGA. The screenshots are of the EGA version. Sound is pc speaker and is only music, there are no in-game sounds. Typing 1 will run EGA and 2 will run CGA. You can redefine the steering keys, but the main(only) bug is you MUST redefine them every time you play, but pressing left, right, up, down and space isn’t too bad a price to pay. ALT will pause the game and CTRL will continue it and ESC will quit is you are playing.

Still interested? Go sell some papers!
