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.

You are an explorer in the New World. At the very beginning you are greeted with the "Symphony of the New World" (by Antonin Dvoržak). Next, the computer tells you why, when and how you got there, and what your mission is.

It is quite simple, really:
You landed in Florida (as one of the Spanish expeditions really did) and will discover new territories. At the end you must return to the Gulf of Mexico in time, otherwise the ship that should take you back to Europe will be gone!

On your expedition you will encounter many natives. They will be either friendly or unfriendly (you'll see the number in the bottom left corner). If they are at least neutral, you can explore that place (finding new plants and animals – and naming them).

From time to time you'll also need to rest and trade for supplies. You can also plunder, but that won't get you far!

There are several quizzes within the game, that you must answer – for extra points. Read everything that appears on the screen, because at the end, your knowledge will be tested – again for extra points. There is also another bonus – there are four pieces of a medallion you should try and find.

I'd give Discovering America a 4. It's a nice game, and you can learn a lot, but once you reach the top score... you probably won't go back and replay it!

When you unzip the game you must install it!
Now this is an old game, so it thinks it is on a floppy disk, so the installation can be done only from drive a: or drive b:!

There are two ways of installing it:
1 – copy the game to a floppy and install from there
2 – use DOSBox and mount the directory of the install program as drive b:
(eg. mount b: c:\DA) and (mount g: c:)
