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.

1000 Miglia - The Roaring Years of Sports Cars. A title that makes us think, "Wow, what a game this must be…" Well, be excited for as long as you can - it’ll be the only pleasant emotion you will have for the next few moments before you switch back to Outrun.

It is 1927, and after enormous difficulties the first Mille Miglia (Italian for "1000 Miles") automobile race is about to start. It was first thought that this race would never be repeated, but after the success of the first race, it became more and more popular. It was held once a year from 1927 until 1938, and then again from 1947 until 1957. If you'd like more information, read the manual or visit www.1000miglia.it.

Let’s talk about the game that tries to bring a taste of this glorious race into our homes. Once in, select your car, as well as a pair of drivers from the roster (be sure to choose one with good mechanical abilities). When you've finished, select the year you would like to drive in (1927 - 1933) and start your race. You'll have the chance to take up to six spare parts with you. Choose wisely - this can save a lot of time when you're in trouble.

Finally, the race begins, and the semi-3D bitmaps fly all around you. Try to steer a bit, and don't dare to drive at full speed (neither CPU cycles nor the car's speed itself), or you might reach the Trouble screen quite fast. The Trouble screen is what you’ll see at least two or three times during each race. It means you have hit too many obstacles, and your car needs repairs. When you'd like to know where the hell you are, just press space to access the race map and the driver's physical status. When you see that your driver is almost out of energy, you may want to switch pilots.

After a short time, you'll finish the first stage and can directly jump to the next. One nice feature is the option to save the game after a race and continue another day - a day where you'll have forgotten about the sound and gameplay misery.

It's quite hard to write a conclusion now that I didn’t speak too highly about 1000 Miglia. I think it's best that you try it yourself. It definitely didn’t convince me, so I'd rather continue playing Outrun and Lotus.

The first problem I encountered was “What do I need to start?” A MIDI driver. But no prob -- it's included in the archive. First run MIDI3DRV.EXE and then MIGLIA.EXE. For the impatient ones, there's MM.BAT to speed up the process a bit.
