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.

Joust is a game which really needs no introduction. I'm sure that you will have heard of it before. If not, Joust is a game where you play a guy with a pole riding around on an ostrich and using said pole to knock other jousters off their birds.

The graphics are nothing special - it only uses orange, red and a dark green for everything - but they work well together, and don't hurt your eyes as much as a standard CGA game, although they do tend to get a little boring after two hours. But if you really can't deal with it, just go play the VGA version.

The sound, of course, is very basic, consisting of only a few beeps and buzzes from the PC speaker, but it is done quite well, and doesn't annoy at all. Some of the sound effects are actually quite well-placed, such as your ostrich sliding to a stop.

Overall, while it's not amazing, it is a good game (especially if you are bored) and worthy of a 4. And, dare I say it, I doubt that arena-based games like Unreal Tournament would exist without this sort of precursor.

 

The only thing that needs to be kept in mind here is that the game will run too fast with anything over about 3000 cycles.
