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.

Ever read Thomas Moore?
He described Utopia as a place where (among other things a man and a woman would see each other naked before the wedding and decide if they like what they see – at the time that the parents were still arranging the whole thing)! Well this Utopia is nothing like that, but you get a chance to build your own world.

First time I heard about this game was when I asked to be assigned for a game no one else would like to review and Tom gave me this… Didn't even know what the game was about, but after reading some other reviews and especially the manual, I knew this was the game for me!

So let's start playing. At first you'll see an interface you'll really hate (at least I did). It's an early copy of some other interfaces with a really unoriginal arrow as a pointer. 0 points for creativity, but 8 points for doing the job (better then having no pointer at all). The scrolling could do with a renewal also, but…
I guess I'm just demanding too much. Must always remember this game was made back in the early 90s!

Compared to some other games from that time it's awesome. This is the one, that I believe got games like Caesar 2 & 3, Pharaoh, and many other games going.

It's about building basically – so a comparison with Sim City is a natural one, but in Utopia you're advancing from stage to stage, collecting medals as well – and only after you've achieved a certain standard of living you'll be ready to proceed to the next stage!

You have different types of buildings, which are needed to make the place work:
-It's on another planet, so you'll need to produce your own oxygen.
-For every production as you well know, you'll need energy.
-For things to work you'll need workers, who will work only for money, so you need money…
-And don't forget the army. You are not alone in the universe you know!!!

Aliens will try to attack you when you're little piece of Utopia looks nice enough for them to take it!
When that happens, you'll need a Command Centre, build as many as you like, but remember only one can be active at the time.

Basically the active one is the place where all the action during an attack takes place – you command through it – that's why it's the Command Centre (duh). That's also why it's a primary target for your enemies (better build a few, otherwise you're in big trouble).

You can counterstrike as well, but then you don't have any command of your troops, you'll just get a report telling you if they succeeded or failed miserably (as I have playing this game).

But the thing I loved most about it (and it's I believe the most original part) is the ability to spy on the aliens!!!

You need enough money to do that of course, but you'll have the upper hand, and it's always fun to peep on an slimy purple 10 eyed alien female while undressing – right?

Anyway – I'd give this game a 3. I really hated the interface – you must click on the red square every time you wanna leave a certain screen – blah! Otherwise it's a game, that will offer you some entertainment the second time around also – so it's not a one time wonder…
