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.

Wing Commander Academy is a fun but often overlooked 3D space shooter. Originally released to appease anxious fans eagerly awaiting the release of Wing Commander 3 and Privateer, this little game has since been forgotten by the masses.

The premise is quite simple: you're a student at the Academy, training to be a pilot in the war against the Kilrathi. With no plot or missions to speak of, this game is essentially for the Wing Commander fan, and probably won't entice other gamers. Wing Commander Academy is modeled as a Confederation Academy simulator, allowing players to create and then fly their own customized missions; the player is able to easily play around and create custom scenarios. The only limit is your imagination.

There are a few old faces available as wingmen: Angel, Hobbes and Maniac; but also new pilots such as Lightspeed. Different fighters are available, including all Wing Commander 2-era Confederation fighters, as well as most of the Kilrathi models. Two new fighters are also introduced: the Confederation Wraith medium fighter and the Kilrathi Jrathek medium fighter. The game has an addictive high-score gauntlet mode, which can keep the player shooting down enemy ships for quite some time.

The graphics are pretty much on par with those of Wing Commander 2; they are almost directly copied from the second installment in the series.

Bottom line is: no plot, no cinematics, just the challenge of fighting off wave after wave of fighters.

Works fine in DOSBox, no fixes or patches required on my end.

Part of the Wing Commander Series
