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 was actually the first great hockey game for the old console SNES, or Super Nintendo Super Famicom, which I played til my fingers bleed. (Bryan Adams anyone..?) So going from this solid old console game ten years ago to playing it on PC today, really puts the game to the test.

What thrills me the most is the detail level of the game. You can choose a straight quick exhibition or a long gruelling play-off. It introduces the ability to control line changes yourself, even set up the lines exactly as you'd like. In the breaks between periods you get to see highlights from other games, and every goal that's scored tells you who did it and who assisted it. This may not sound special compared to todays games, but this was ground-breaking at the time.

The graphics are fully functional, and things like players celebrating at goals, referees showing penalties with hand-signals and breaking the glass behind the goal, really is great. What some people can find annoying at first is that the ice is more blue than white, but after playing it for a while it's not a problem anymore. The sound has stuff like crowd cheers, national anthems and goal buzzers, which all adds up to a nice feeling.

The main thing of this game though, is the excellent playability. Whether you control your player by keyboard, joystick or even mouse (!), it still feels like you're really on ice. It's not as easy as just turning swiftly and accelerating quickly, you have to get a feel for how to best manage the skating. When you do you'll want to start setting up first-time slapshots when you pass a team-mate. This is an effective and a bit tricky technique that'll help you win games.

This game opened the way for all of EA Sports:s later releases upto this day. So far there's been 12 sequels, but I'd put this one up against any one of them. A must have !

To access the statistics and team details screens you need to run this game in a true Dos enviroment. Dosbox won't do, although you can play the game fine in it otherwise.
