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.
If you’ve played the original Arkanoid you’ll like this one. The evil Doh, apparently defeated in the first game (don’t know if anyone has actually ever got there), has returned and it is up to your flying of your Arkanoid space craft to once again defeat him.
The game is almost identical to its predecessor, where the basic idea is to keep the ball bouncing around the screen until all the blocks are gone. The various power ups that some times fall down the screen are essential in getting anywhere in the game and after a few stages you learn to look out for your favorites.
The graphic is improved from the original and it keeps the original game play, which can become addictive. So if you’re a ball and paddle game fan definitely give this one a try.
The game does run under XP but your balls sometimes disappear, so dos box is recommend (unless you want the extra challenge).
