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.

Introduction...
Three Fold is a Christian education picture matching game.

Tell me a story...
Ecclesiastes 4:12 - "A threefold cord is not easily broken." That's it. Not sufficient? Then just think about it as: Once upon a time there was God...

The same procedure as every year?...
No, absolutely not. There are 7x7 cover tiles. When you click on one, the underlying three-sided tile is revealed. These can be rotated stepwise in one directory. You change one tile per turn, trying to get three matching pictures in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally), memorising where which pictures are for future turns. When you get such a triplet, you win and get a synopsis of a bible verse describing the picture of the found triplet (when you quit, the last revealed picture is described). Only mouse control (sorry, keyboarders). The player number can be one (showing the tries you needed as a result) to three.

Eyes and ears...
The graphics is VGA. Style = textually pleasing, graphically stumbling. The tiles make a faint internal speaker crackle. Fitting church FM musics at the title screen, the instructions and the winning/quitting screen.

After output now the input...
flip/rotate tile - Mouse click*
quit - Esc
*rapid-clicking on single-click; annoying like heaven

Transduction...
An interesting but strange ruleset. To have to uncover the three-folded tiles is nonsense (except for programming matters). And it's nearly impossible to memorise 147(!) picture locations which even are ordered in sequences. It becomes a mere good-luck clicking safari. Furthermore, it is - in several respects - harmful to the challenge/competition to go for only one triplet. Dan Sharpe simply should have made a triplet matching game in which you always flip three normal cards corresponding to the pairs concept (Trinity Matchup, anyone?). ONE point! Recommended for extreme memorisers, random clickers and small groups.



Because of a bug in Borland Pascal, you get the runtime error 200 on undamped fast systems. For a fix, click the (future) link in the extras, but be aware that the game then runs slower as intended. Under post-DOS operating systems you should simply use DOSBox. If you can't change to FM music or/and want to hear the title screen tune, start the game with C:\>3FOLD /FM.
