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.
A fine game from Wizard Games, Rockstar is also a very addictive one.
You play the role of a classic rock band leader, and your goal is to achieve maximum popularity. You'll accomplish this by writing songs, playing gigs in various places (from your neighborhood to America and Europe), recording albums or singles, signing contracts with majors or staying an independent label, throwing parties with groupies, and always following the saying "Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll."
This isn’t a game for kids. It contains coarse language and questionable behavior.
In fact, you’ll often be asked to take various kinds of drugs, which will have different effects on your brain and on your life as a decadent superstar. You’ll have to be careful, because some will give you more “creativity," others will damage you more and make you become drug-addicted.
Being that it's not a really "healthy" lifestyle, you'll have sometimes to visit your doctor or your analyst, go on vacation to relax (there are various possibilities, from "Sunny Britain[sic]" to "Paradise Island"), or even, in the worst case scenario unwind in a sanatorium or make drug rehabilitation. Obviously this will make you fall into deep depression...
You have to take care, because too much disorderly conduct will lead you to your death.
You can also change the names of computer bands into real rock bands, making the game even more realistic. Or even more comical. It can be funny to read sentences like, “you’re invited to a wild rave party led by Pavarotti," or “your granny invites you to take some amphetamines."
Well, if you get into this game you’ll surely enjoy it, so pick up your Stratocaster and start practicing ... one day you could be a Rockstar!
This game needs DOSBox to run smoothly.
