Imagine this: You're playing Myst. Suddenly, all the puzzles aren't so tediously tough any more. The graphics look far more cartoony, with realistic cutscenes. It isn't frustrating any more, but actually fun to play. Well, if you can imagine that, you're imagining Ween - The Prophecy.
Ween is an adventure game, but not in the way we're used to. It's a point-and-click first-person adventure game, in the style of Myst, yet for some reason completely different. You can gather companions, to start with. In addition to that, there is the variation on the usual inventory system, along with a notepad and the option of having a short list of what you have to do, which you can use three times. All in all, it's more like Myst, Scumm and Gobliiins combined.
The game itself is divided into several levels. Those are mostly made up of two screens, and a couple of close-ups for certain places. The puzzles are challenging, yet not too hard, which keeps the game fun and interesting. The graphics offer a lot of extras, like chuckling skulls. The cutscenes have realistic graphics, which is a nice change whenever you see it, and it helps to maintain the player's interest.
Ween is a game in which you start out wondering what you've loaded up, but quickly enough, it has you entirely hooked. It deserves it, too. This game is one-of-a-kind and therefore needs to be played. Have fun with it, or else...
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.
