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.

This game is a pretty standard variant of the classic Sea Battle game that you've probably played before on paper. The difference in this computer game interpretation is that once you enter your name as a player, and receive your personal card that holds some statistics, you can immediately start playing. I don't know why, but in this game you play as Russia vs. Ukraine. That's quite... interesting, but maybe it was inspired by the political situation in Russia at that time.

Anyways, at first you have to position your ships (which come in a variety of sizes) on a map. When you are finished, two fields are shown. On the left, you can see your layout of ships, and on the right is the computer's. Then you just have to fire at the cells and with a bit of luck you may hit something. The game ends after all ships on either side are sunk.

The only frustrating issue in this game is that if the computer hits a ship that is occupying more than one cell, his next shots will ALWAYS hit that ship in the rest of its cells, and you can easily lose the game in this way. So if the computer hits your four cell dreadnought, you can say goodbye to your chances of winning that game. I think it's unfair.

The game runs without problems in DOSBox.
