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.

Does anybody remember Goonies?
I won’t say it was my favorite 80s movie, but I liked it nonetheless.

Well, here’s a game based on that movie. Actually this is an MSX game that Friends Software converted for DOS.

It’s a nice run’n’jump platfromer where you control a little character who went in the underground caverns in order to find the lucrative pirate treasure hidden there (if you remember the movie, you know about it).

Unfortunately this game doesn’t involve any puzzles since the movie was a treasure seeking quest where you had to solve puzzles an adventure game would be much more appropriate (in my opinion), but alas, that’s not what happened.

Still you have to run around collecting things in order to use them later on.

The graphics are nice enough, but I really miss the characters of the movie. They just aren’t here. The sounds are basic, but get that mid-eighties gaming feel alive. The controls are very simple, since you can run, jump, climb… it’s all intuitive and you automatically pick up and unlock stuff. The only button that might puzzle you just a little bit would be ESC. Sure, you’d press it to exit the game, but it actually brings up the menu screen and you can save and load games as well as quit.

So go on and have a few afternoons of simple and straightforward gaming fun. I’m guessing the game will have at least some appeal, although it’s not what I’d call a classic. It’s still nice to play it.
