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.
Dynamix's first adventure, Rise of The Dragon, is a futuristic game that borrows some elements from Blade Runner.
The year is 2053. Chandra Vicenzi, a young girl from L.A. who also happens to be the mayor’s daughter and a drug addict, dies in a pleasure district of the city. Her body mutates into some form of lizard, and she is not the only one. For the mayor, this was the last straw, since it's the election year, and he wants someone to investigate things with no publicity.
You are William “Blade” Hunter, ex-cop and private investigator. As a private eye, you are hired to investigate the death of the mayor's daughter. You will soon find yourself involved in a Chinese Mafia drug ring, mysterious deaths, and an ancient Chinese prophecy. As an NPC in the game would say, ”Dooomed, we are all doomed. Bahumat has risen again!”
The game is great. It has a non-linear plot, many puzzles to be solved, and multiple endings, so you can play it again and again. Characters in the game can and will remember your actions and words, so you must be careful. Also, the game has comic-book style cut scenes that advance the storyline and excellent arcade sequences.
To end, here's a few bits of advice: Remember to pick up your ID Card and clothes before you hit the street. Use inventory with a left mouse click when you need to give or take things and with a right mouse click when you want to equip Blade.
In conclusion, I would advise every adventure fan to give this one a try!
