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 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.

Skull & Crossbones

The pirates are here, ready to collect treasure and destroy anybody and anything that stands in their way.

Fight your way through various ships, forts and other devilish hideouts in the skin of One Eye the fearless pirate. You’ll be defeating other pirates, conquistadors, ninjas, skeletons and other merry folks who were bonded together by an evil wizard who has your treasure (and princess, by some gossip talk) and doesn’t intend to give it back to you easily. You can also fight side by side with a friend, who in that case controls Red Dog, another brave and revenge-thirsty pirate.

The levels scroll from one end to another and there is a boss waiting for you at the end of each - bosses are either tough (have more energy) or quick (hit you faster). You gain money by vanquishing foes and digging for treasure where crossbones signs lie on the ground; there are various values of treasure. One Eye is controlled by direction keys and one action key for attacking with his trusty sword. It is easy to get into shape: The main trick is to avoid being hit by enemies because your health is limited (50 points). Health is restored by eating fruit and meat that are found on the ground. Foes attack one at a time, which makes this game perfectly balanced. If you die you can try again (from the point where you died) three times and then it’s game over.

Graphics are ok by my opinion; it was 1991 after all. Foes are varied enough and bosses are interesting as well, but the evil wizard looks ridiculous, like some horny cat-human thing in a robe, pooh. There is no sound, only backround music, which is nice. Just don’t play it too loud, because then it gets annoying.

All in all, Skull & Crossbones is a nice game worth playing for all metuzalem-game lovers (like myself). Two things are bad in my book about this title: First is that you have to redefine controls every time you start a game (you don’t have to but the original key positions are just stupid). Second demerit is that there is no highscore table, which would spice up a challenge even more. I suggest that you play the game in EGA or VGA mode - they look the same to me but are certainly better than CGA mode.

Shout one more Haaarrr! and press the download button!!! :)
