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.

Slordax: The Unknown Enemy is a fun, yet frustrating 2D-Shooter by John Carmack. It was published by SoftDisk Publishing, because at the time they had a contract with iD Software.

The game's story is pretty simple: Legend has it. that long ago a very-powerful race called the Slordax, set on to conquer the galaxy. This bloody war lasted for a century, but in the end they we're repelled. But now, there's something going on in the Slordian system, which was considered "dead" for over 700 years. Are the mighty Slordax returning?!
The Intergalactic Defense Alliance has sent you to explore and eliminate all enemies you encounter and, if necessary, eliminate the Slordax once and for all!

The gameplay of Slordax is pretty simple: Go through levels, shoot down your enemies and pick-up power-ups ut Slordax has a unique, and in my opinion, bad twist: Unlike traditional 2D-Shooters where enemies come in waves, shoot you and pass-by, in Slodrax the enemies charge at you, and if not destroyed, will literally bounce around the screen until destroyed. This doesn't sound all that bad, but seriously: most of the time they just bounce around the bottom of the screen, making it impossible to really shoot them down or they will block your path and become a "pain-in-the-ass". This really makes the game hard and frustrating at times, but if you're good, you can avoid this from happening. Also, there aren't much power-ups in the game: You get to upgrade your weapon to maximum with 2 power-ups, you can make your ship more maneuverable, get rapid fire and more lives. The enviorment is really tricky to maneuver, because most of the time there's an enemy in your way and you crash into it. And did I mention that you if you get hit just once, you will loose all your power-ups... Well, this shouldn't be problem, but add all the bad things I said together and you'll really get frustrated.
 
The game only supports PC-Speaker sounds or a Headset, which is pretty disappointing.

Slordax has nice and detailed EGA graphics. It's quite colourful and detailed, although, sometimes you don't know what's going to kill you, and what isn't.

In conclusion, despite all it's frustrating flaws, Slordax: The Unknown Enemy is a good 2D-Shooter that's worth a try. I'll give the game a big-fat 3. :)
