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.

    Way back when Epic Megagames were producing tens of games within a year, there was one shooter that was compared to Descent, and overlooked simply because its graphics were not as good. This game, however, has very little in common with Descent other than a lack of gravity, and deserves far more respect than anyone granted it at the time.
    You see, Radix: Beyond The Void is insane. Unlike Descent, where robots were found in ones or twos and were often able to do a considerable amount of damage on their own, Radix has largely ineffective robots. The challenge in Radix is that every room has a large number of enemies scattered everywhere - it is common to enter a room and encounter a hundred robots, all either firing a large amount of energy weapons at you, or flying around the room and ramming into you at high speed. Because of this, the gameplay is hectic, frenetic and more exciting than Descent.
    The weapon design in the game matches the speed perfectly, with all of the weapons having either a high rate of fire, most notably the EPC and the Neutron cannon, or an area effect, such as the Gravity Wave, which is capable of clearing an entire room in a single shot, or the Plasma Spreader, which sends bouncing plasma around a room. In addition to being suited well to the gameplay, the weapons match the speed of multiplayer games, making for fast-paced and unbiased combat.
    The art style of the game involves heavy use of red and grey, especially on the alien planet, and is well served by a Doom-style graphics engine utilising mostly sprites. The strength in the graphics of the game, however, is the amount of debris and the number of explosions. Every enemy death and barrel detonation is accompanied by a string of explosion and smoking pieces of robot or shredded pieces of alien (often both) flying everywhere to the point that sometimes the engine is unable to handle them all. The sound and music are both of excellent quality, although the harsh guitar sound of the music may become irritating after a while.
    Alo unlike Descent, the story plays a minor part in the game, providing your motivations for completing both your primary and secindary objectives. The map design is quite unconventional, and provides a far more direct path to your episodical objectives than other games - that is, where some games would tell you to find another way round, Radix tells you to hold down your Fire button and blast straight through, and it is refreshing to see a game that just tells you to blow everything up.
    The only complaint I have about the game is that the game is quite short, even on the hardest difficulty level. If you're not as picky as me and don't worry about finding every secret and killing every enemy, it will likely be even shorter, and can probably be finished in a dedicated afternoon. Other than that, Radix is an addictive, fast-moving blast-fest worthy of a 5.

Is A Glorious Day In The Core not glorious enough? Are you kicking too much Xenomorphic butt? Type NSDEATH and be prepared to die.

Just give Radix max cycles. Any value higher than 40000 should work brilliantly.
