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 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.

Jisaeneun Dal is an interesting action platform game by Pantech, who usually published games by Mirinae Software. While the setting in medieval Korea is quite uncommon, the plot is just the typical damsel in distress fare: The hero Dusu's village is attacked, and his girlfriend is kidnapped by some rich snob who wants to marry her. Dusu has to fight through six stages to get to the villain's residence.

Dusu fights with a wooden stick, which unfortunately doesn't have a very wide range, but at least it can be used to block attacks by pressing the down arrow. There is also a limited supply of hatchets that are used as throwing weapons. At some points in the levels, it's also possible to collect magic spells that are very destructive, but also take some charging time, which might put the hero in danger.

Unfortunately the game's mechanics are not that polished. The controls are responsive enough, but the hit detection is merciless, making it often next to impossible to avoid getting hit by enemies. Dusu also easily falls off the borders of platforms, rendering many jumps more annoying than they should be. The game also has some bugs, most importantly that only the fastest speed setting really works without problems (at least in DOSBox), but the fast speed also makes the game really hard.

The graphics and music are quite nice and really drive home the oriental atmosphere. Technologically, the graphics are about the level you'd expect from a SNES game. Since Jisaeneun Dal is so much inspired by console games, it also only offers passwords to resume the game at a previously reached stage.

Attack: strg
Throw: alt
Magic: space
Guard: down
Jump: up
Run: double tap left or right
Speed down: F5 (do not use, causes glitches in DOSBox)
Speed up: F6 (press several times when the game starts to avoid glitches)
Quit game: F10 (warning: no confirmation prompt)

The game uses a password system, but during the game the numbers are shown in Korean writing. Also, passwords are randomly generated each time the game is installed, so they won't work on another computer.

Important: F5 and F6 are meant to regulate the game speed internally. However, for the game to run properly it is vital to press F6 at the beginning each time until the game is at its fastest speed, and then never press F5 again, as all other speed settings will cause glitches: Once hit, the player remains blinking and invincible, which not only destroys the challenge, but also causes more severe bugs later on.

The download contains the CD image. Switch to the CD drive the image is mounted to in DOSbox (important: mount with -t cdrom parameter), then type install. First the sound card has to be set; the second option is auto detection.
After the sound card follows the choice between CD based (upper choice) and HD based (lower choice) install, but only the CD based works! Finally, the install path has to be set.

The options in the start menu are as follows:
New Game
Continue (Password)
