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.

Home Alone is the DOS version of the hit movie. It was made by Capstone in 1991, and was also developed for the Game Boy. It is much better than it's sequel game, which came out a few years later.

In this game, you play as Kevin McCallister, who slept in too late, and was accidentally left behind by his family when they rushed out to get to the airport in time to catch the plane to Paris. Kevin is home alone, and there are two crooks named Harry and Marv out to take all the stuff in the house. You must prevent this. You have exactly an hour to go around the house, picking up things and setting traps in all parts of the house in an attempt to scare away the crooks. At the end of the hour, Harry and Marv will show up, and try to catch Kevin. You must lead him past the traps and cause the crooks to get caught in them, so you can escape. The position of the crooks and the traps that are set in each room are recorded in the screen above the game screen. If a crook catches you, the game ends.

The graphics in the game are awesome. Every pixel is placed perfectly, but the animations are really funny looking. The backgrounds are also very good looking. The music is not good though, and is somewhat annoying, so you may turn your sound off. I loved this game, and am still playing it as I am writing this review. I give it a straight 5, because it's just awesome.

UPDATER'S NOTE:
I found the keys really frustrating at first, so here you go: you move with the cursor keys, you have two fire buttons (you set them the first time you run the game) and you must also use the Function Buttons. You pick up weapons with F1, you browse through them with F2 and set the as traps with F3. If you wish to speed things up press N (this will speed up the time and the crooks will show up - use this when you've finished setting the traps). Now go and play!
