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.
In 1993 SkyRoads was launched. One year after came the successor, SkyRoads Xmas! The theme of the game is Christmas and many of the different levels depict this in different ways.
The game itself is almost identical to the original SkyRoads. The differences lay in brand new tracks, and a harder difficulty. The navigation is still the same: up arrow, accelerate; down, brake. And the directional buttons left and right will make you turn. Lastly you jump with the space bar. Incredibly simple.
There isn't much to say about the graphics in the game. They are the same as in SkyRoads. The only difference is the usage of colours (at least in the beginning).
You can choose between a lot of different tracks, at any time you want. So you don't need to complete one track to play another, something I really like.
In SkyRoads you jump around on some sorts of pavement tiles. Some of these are very special:
- Light red: You blow up.
- Light green: Increases speed.
- Dark grey: Slippery.
- Dark blue: Refills fuel and O2.
- Dark green: Sticky.
A very addictive and recommended game!
Download and enjoy! :)
