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.

Tired of the geography questions of Trivial Pursuit? Looking for something that's actually a challenge? Then this game slaps the glove straight in your face. Although it is an educational game, and thus aimed at kids, it poses a decent challenge to everybody and is probably too hard for children. Nonetheless, it's worth playing.

Where in The World is Carmen Sandiego? Deluxe is a remake of a remake of the classic game. In contrast to the previous versions, the effort on the audio-visual part was greatly increased with this one. The entire game is now made as if it's played on a high-tech phone. Well... high-tech for 1994.

All animations in the game are in cartoon style and mostly take place on the phone's video screen. It's a slight breach of style from the full-color photos in there that show scenery specific to your current location. By checking options on your notepad, you check places and people for evidence and hints as to where the criminal has gone. If you're at the right place, you'll get a zany little animation showing that the culprit just left or is still there. Other animations play when you've caught the right criminal or when you are using the phone.

When using the phone, another big change is evident: full speech, with a text box that shows what's being said. The quality of the speech is pretty high for the time and the resources used, and is all in all a pleasant addition. The music is nice but stays in the background. That way, it never gets annoying.

Another feature worth mentioning is that you can keep a list of the criminal's characteristics and have the game look up who could be the culprit, and then issue a warrant for that person. If you're not sure about it, you can search through the dossier with all possible criminals. Also, as an additional aid, you've got a list of countries at your disposal with some basic information about each, a map, and a list of the surrounding countries.

All in all, you can hardly recognize the first version in this game, although it followed the same concept. That's not a bad thing, though, as the changes didn't affect the game itself, but made it far more fun and easier to use. Two thumbs up for the remake.



The game works even in Windows XP, but you'll only hear the PC-speaker, so it's best to try playing it in DOSBox or with VDMSound.
