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.

Mixed-Up Mother Goose - Enhanced is an upgraded version of Mixed-Up Mother Goose (1987), created in 1991 by Sierra On-Line, Inc. The game revolves around solving mixed-up nursery rhymes, none of which are very difficult for an adult -- but for children, this game's target market, it's a fun and enjoyable adventure. Of course, this doesn't stop an adult turning it on and having a bit of fun; just don’t expect this game to take more than half an hour to solve. The only thing a child may have trouble with is that some items are inside buildings, not all of which have an obvious entrance. Unlike in other Sierra adventures, saving the game is not required, as every time you solve a rhyme, the game autosaves for the player.

The beginning of the game allows you to choose your player’s avatar, which is a nice touch. After that, you see the player character getting ready for bed. Clicking on objects in the room causes some cool little animations to play out. Clicking on the book on the shelf starts the game.

The gameplay is simple, and due to the fact that this is a children’s game, the controls are also simple - in fact, the only control needed is from the mouse. Clicking on the screen moves your character to where you clicked, and clicking on a character will let you talk to them; otherwise you can click on the mouth icon on the bottom of the screen to talk to people on the screen. If there is no one on the screen, clicking the mouth icon causes your character to talk out loud.

Down on the bottom of the screen, besides the mouth icon, are three more areas to pay attention to: The first area on the left side of the screen is a group of indents, and every time you complete a mixed-up nursery rhyme, one of the indents fills up with a golden ball. The second is a blue square, and when you pick up an item or a person who wants to follow you, an image fills this square. The last button before the mouth icon is the map button, and pressing this brings up the map. It's simple, really. On the map, any unsolved rhyme will be shown as a gold dot; once solved, the dot becomes a portrait of the people in the rhyme. On the right of the screen are three more areas of importance: two sliders, one for controlling the volume of the game, the other the speed. The top button is a Stop button - pressing it allows you to quit the game.

The graphics for this game are not the best that Sierra has ever produced. The backgrounds are very nice and detailed, and they make it easy to understand where the objects are that can be picked up. However, the characters are not as well drawn as usual, although their animations are very well done. Solving some of the rhymes leads the characters to perform some very amusing antics.

The sound for this game is great: The music fits perfectly with the game's style and adds a nice mood. While there is no talking in the game, solving a rhyme leads to its being sung to the player. These are well done, and are in different voices appropriate for each character.

Overall, I find this game to be mildly enjoyable, although I'm not the target audience; for a child this game would be a lot funnier and take a lot longer. If you have children or just want to feel like one again, grab this game and give it a go.
