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.

It's time for some racing. Super Karts is a good arcade game. Which means it's not too realistic, but it's still fun to play.

There are two modes to play in. One is arcade style where you get lives and points by collecting money someone dropped on the track. The more money you collect the better. You will also get money for good racing results, so don't stay too far behind when collecting it.

Another option is a kind of simulation. This one is my favourite. You select either 1st or 2nd part of tournament or you can play the whole tournament. You will have to race and get points for good performance. The one who collects the most points wins. Again you can pick up money to buy upgrades (such as larger tank or better engine…) for the car. This is basically unnecessary on easier levels; however on harder ones you will have to do it. The difference in levels is the speed of the cars and their armour. Cars are much faster on higher levels of play.

Both modes have a pit stop - a marked place where you drive through slowly to get fuelled up and repaired. And both have arcade bonuses to collect (available at pit-stop as well). You can collect turbo (up to 5), super grip (up to 5), oil (your breaking oil). Turbo will make your car go fast and super grip will give you much needed extra grip on tight corners (computer uses these extras as well). Oil is a different matter. By leaking oil to the track you can mess up computers tyre grip. Your opponents will spin around like crazy, but if you leak too much of it on the road, your car will loose breaks and you will loose traction as well, so be careful.

A special feature of the game is that it creates a text based log file on your primary drive. It creates a nice table and you can check for current standings after any race, or all yours and opponent’s lap times.

The game also has network play, and 2 player split screen. However I experienced key- jamming problems in the latter. Maybe if you try to set up different keys….

The game has good sound effects considering its age. Music is nothing special. I usually turn it off. Graphics are good. Playability is high, because it’s for beginners as well as for experienced users. Its weakness is the fact that you can’t play a single race. So I would give a 4 overall.
