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.

The story of the planet Dune has produced a legendary book, a legendary movie, and, of course, a legendary game! I am quite sure that if you've come to this page, you've already been a victim of this game! Countless sleepless nights, sleepovers, missed dates... What Wolfenstein 3D was to first-person shooters, Dune 2 is to real-time strategies. I can safely say it's the mother of all modern RTS games.

The main concept is well known: watching from a bird's-eye perspective, your job is to build a functional base using the facilities on offer, and create an army worthy of defeating the opposing force(s). You can choose any of the houses Atreides, Harkonnen or Ordos. Each faction has their own set of weaponry, buildings and special weapons. This is perhaps what makes the game extremely interesting and addictive. With each mission you gain access to new buildings and weaponry. Your job is to conquer the entire planet Dune.

As you can see from the screenshots, the graphics aren't spectacular when compared to modern-day games, but in 1992 such complexity, cutscenes and well-implemented, functional graphics were rarely seen. The music and sounds deserve an A+, no objections there. If this review did not convince you that this game is just phenomenal, I advise that you download it and see for yourself. You'll thank me later!

This is the patched version (v1.07). The patch greatly improves stability (no more radar or starport freeze), gameplay and compatibility. This patched version works normally with sound when run under Windows XP.

MrFlibble has made a small patch that fixes various errors and bugs, including the ones adressed in the official Westwood patch. You can download it in the Extras section. If you decide to use it, you don't need to run the official sound fix. For the full list of changes and fixes go here.

In the same place you can also download the mod Super Dune II: Classic Edition. More information you can find in this forum thread. There's a readme included in the zip archive, which has instructions on how to install the modification.
