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.
Tyrian 2000 is one of the best space arcade games ever made. Why? I thought you would never ask, let me tell you.
The graphic in the game is pure perfection! (Look at the screens, agree and read on).
The music is also exceptional. There isn't much more to say about that. What gives this game a pure 5 point score is the plot. Yes, this game (unlike all the others) has a plot. And it is a deep one. Your role is that of Trent Hawkings, Space Ace extraordinary. Without any warning you will be thrown into a deadly game of power as MicroSol tries to take complete control over the planetary system called Tyrian. Alone you stand against a mighty corporation. Your friends will betray you, your parents will be killed, and everything and everyone turns against you. There will be different routes for you to take, so the game will never repeat itself. You will get the plot of the game from different Data Sources all over the game. These will include messages from friends, allies and others that will unlock new weapons, ships or star-travels. Since these data-sources are hidden within buildings and enemy ships, you will never go through the game twice with the exact same information. So the actual game will change all the time. Just what any game need!
In case you were wondering about the actual game-stats let me list them up for you. It goes to show how big the actual game is.
Over 65 levels spanning 5 episodes (you will also play these levels more than once).
Full game, Arcade game and Timed Battle modes.
Over 16 hidden modes and levels.
Ship editor (The best thing in the whole game! Lets you custom build your ship for every mission).
A jukebox (Lets you listen to the game music).
Over 10 pre-made ship designs.
Over 100 weapons.
Supports both 1 player and 2 player mode.
Still reading? Sorry, but I don't want to write more. I have to play the game again. See you in the game.
