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.
This game was made in 1992 and is part of the Sierra Discovery series. It's full of all kinds of puzzles and I enjoyed it a lot.
The game starts out with Dr. Brain telling you how he was working late in his lab and was clouted with a pink flamingo and the plans for his latest top-secret project were stolen. Fortunately, Dr. Brain had left the fact that the project requires a special battery to operate. The battery can be found in only one place - Dr. Brain's private island. Your assignment is to go to his island, get the battery and bring it back to him. On the island, you will have to go through Dr. Brain's security puzzles. If you are in any trouble, you can use the hint watch to contact Dr. Brain and he will give you clues. Some of the puzzles are easy, others are not.
The graphics are good looking and it's full of easter eggs (click on everything you see). There is even a little speech and you can choose between Adlib, General MIDI and PC Speaker music.
This is a good game, but unfortunately it's a lot easier than it's predecessor, The Castle of Dr. Brain. I urge you to try some (or all) of the puzzles on the expert level. They're much harder then. Try to beat my record in the "Tower of Hanoi" puzzle on expert level - 468 moves!
Copy protection note: when asked for latitude and longitude coordinates at the beginning, just click anywhere on the screen and the game will accept them!
