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.

Surely you have heard of Sonic the Hedgehog? SEGA's answer to Super Mario was all the rage back in the early 90s, and his adventures on the 16-bit Genesis console are still considered to be some of the greatest games of all time.

This game stands out, however, as it wasn't on a cartridge like the other Sonic games, but on a full-fledged CD-ROM (hence the name "Sonic CD"). That, of course meant more levels, crispier audio, and full-motion video! Sonic CD was a launch title for a short-lived add-on to the Genesis, called the SEGA-CD. In fact, it was the only game for that add-on to sell over 1,000,000 copies! Most Sonic fans say this was the greatest Sonic game ever made.

But enough babble, let's cut to the chase...

The gameplay is what you'd expect from a Sonic game: you collect rings, jump on robots to destroy them, nab powerups, and race to the goal. This game adds a twist: There are posts scattered around each level that take you to a past or future point in that level. You can go into the future for fun, but you really want to go to the past so you can find the Roboticizer and destroy it, so that you can ensure a good future for the level. It's one of two ways to unlock the game's good ending. The other way is to collect all the Time Stones (which replace the Chaos Emeralds in this game) in the Special Stage.

The graphics are vivid and very colorful. They make you feel like you're in the 90s again. The CD-quality music is really crisp; it's a mix of funky techno music that gets your heartbeat going fast. Depending on whether you have played the American version or not, however, you'll either love the soundtrack or hate it. All the music was changed for the American version of the game, replacing the aforementioned "funky techno music" with slower-paced easy listening. I'll leave you to be the judge of what soundtrack you ultimately prefer.

All this time I've been reviewing the SEGA-CDs version of the game; I need to get back on track here! The PC version of the game is also fantastic, especially considering that is was made for early Windows 95 computers. The music still sparkles, the graphics are still bright, and there's extra stuff as well, including the uncut version of the game's intro and ending (which was edited to meet the SEGA-CD's limitations), and hidden easter eggs. I should note that you'll need a special patch in order to play this game on newer operating systems such as Windows XP, but the version on this site comes packaged with the patch, to save you the trouble of having to find it!

Overall, Sonic CD is a real sonic boom! Not only is it one of the blue blur's finest moments, but also one of the greatest examples of the platformer genre.


NOTE: This is a ripped version of the game, and has no CD audio. I strongly recommend you grab the full game from the ISO cellar on the Abandonia forums.
