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 takes you back to 15th century apocryphal England. As one of the Knights of the Round Table, your goal is to take advantage of King Arthur's departure for a Crusade to unite England under one rule -- yours.

As a turn-based strategy game, this game is not impressive. It is after all a two-man job. You can find better strategy games in Abandonia. But a strategy game that you can play in 15 minutes or less? That's what this game is: a shot of strategy insulin to play over the coffee break. If that's what you're looking for, this game is for you.

The interface may come off as threatening, but this game is simplicity itself. You command one and only one campaign through the entire game, in which you are able to move to one territory per turn. But make sure to keep your army within reach of your castle; losing your castle means losing the game. As a defence measure, you can leave soldiers behind to defend your territories: you can re-ingress them back into your campaign once you pass back through the land.

Adding to the difficulty of the game, four different kinds of mercenaries are available to do your bidding: knights, foot soldiers, bowmen and catapults. Foot soldiers are best for defence, bowmen and catapults for offence, while knights are middle-of-the-road soldiers. Here are the tuple table details for each of the four available units. The ratios are calculated based on the amount of peasent damage they can inflict or withstand relative to the cost in gold per soldier: (knight, A: 75%, D: 62%), (foot soldier, A: 50%, D: 100%), (bowman, A: 100%, D: 50%), (catapult, A: 80%, D: 10%).

The developer must not have put much thought into this: there is no advantage in buying catapults. They may be very strong in absolute terms, but for the cost of 2 catapults you can hire 5 bowmen for the very same attack power and 5 times the defence power.

As an Abandonia exclusive, this Deluxe version (the commercial version of the game) adds 4 buttons to the game interface allowing you to fortify a castle, challenge a player for a Joust (an arcade touch to the game), summon Merlin to help you weaken a territory (limited to a couple of times, depending on the difficulty level), and collect emergency taxes (at the cost of future taxes, and potential revolts). An additional level of difficulty is added to this version: Knight. Here you are completely blind, you do not even know where the other players are. You can also customize the number of computer players to play against, as well as select your own character (not only Sir Lancelot).

Right-click the icons for more information, or press F1 for help. The kort.doc file is also rich of juicy details.

While this is a very neat game, the game sins for its monotony. The computer players are too easily beatable -- so much so, even first-time players should be able to come out on top in most matches -- and the lack of maps other than that of England is a major omission.
