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.

A game from the Spanish developer, from back in the days of 4 color CGA graphics… Well, more or less computers used better graphics than that already in 1990, but it’s a conversation from Spectrum ZX, which although a fun little rubber machine, was never famous for it’s breath taking graphics.

It’s an interesting trip down the memory lane to say the least, but it’s a somewhat fun game too.

The concept is quite simple; you’re driving a vehicle through a city that looks like a battle zone. There are thing to shoot and to collect. Some you need simply to jump over.

But the twist comes in controls. Your Buggy consists of two parts. One is the car on wheels driving through the screen and the other is the rocket powered gun sphere. By pressing second fire button you launch it in the air and get to control it, shooting baddies all over the place. It’s great for combat, but the speed at which the screen is moving (it’s a sidescrolling game) depends on the speed of the buggy, which will simply keep constant speed until you resume control of it – or it hits something.

So you can either drive or shoot. There is an option to do both, but if you’re controlling the rover your maneuverability is greatly diminished.

Apart from CGA 4 color graphics I already mentioned the game also involves some sounds, which are not worth mentioning and some speech, which was always a nice addition with games that synthesized speech and didn’t have it recorded as a sound file, played through a player.

1)      The game archive is an IMG file. This means you need to run it through DOSBox and boot the image (boot c:\YOUR CHOSEN DIRECTORY\buggyr.img).

2)      Slow the game down to some 400 cycles.

3)      Since the game is in Spanish (not really big deal) this might be useful:

Main menu options:

F2. Define teclas = Define keys

F3. Pausa = Pause

F4. Continuar = Continue

F5. Comanzar = Start

 

Redefining keyboard settings:

Izquierda = Move left

Derecha = Move right

Abajo = Down

Arriba = Up

Disparo 1 = Fire button 1 (shooting)

Disparo 2 = Fire button 2 (launching)
