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.

The story in Countdown may seem ordinary: You are Mason Powers, a former CIA agent, trapped in an asylum and framed for a crime you did not commit. You're on death row, with part of your memory gone, and you need to escape in order to prove your innocence.

This game is a typical adventure game. You combine both the keyboard and the mouse to move Mason around; the interface may seem challenging at first, but you will be completely familiar with it after you have escaped from your cell. (You can also use hotkeys for the commands: F1 is Look, and so on). To save the game, you have to press the F(ile) key. This is something you should do often, as you do not get a second chance in the game. If you are discovered or caught, you are killed, and the game ends. Some might think of Sierra and the endless deaths in their games, but Countdown is different. There is always a very good reason for you to die.

The graphics are not the best I have seen; in fact, it looks like one of the characters from Jones in the Fast Lane got a new name and job. However, the game makes up for it with extremely good gameplay and storytelling!

As you progress through the game, your memory will come back to you, making the story more complex every time. Soon you will not only have to clear your name, but also stop a global disaster. Of course, you will also have to find the man who is behind it all.

As the name of the game states, there is a time limit. You must finish the game within 96 hours. So stop reading this review, time's a-wasting! The world needs you, Mason Powers.
