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.
EVERYONE has heard of Battle Chess, and many love it. It is by far the most popular chess game ever made for the PC and this is the Windows-Version.
So what is it that draws people to play the game instead of playing against a friend?
The wonderful animations. Nothing is as much fun as watching these little bricks come to life and kick the living daylights out of each other. Every fight is unique and ingenious in its own way. My personal favourite is when the King uses his royal staff as a baseball bat and launches a bomb towards the Knight. The expression on the Knight's face is indescribable.
On the gaming side, it also has a very good AI, so you get a good challenge from the game (even if you are a champ). That is actually all there is to say. It's chess with animation - but we all LOVE it!
5 points without a doubt!
