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.

What do you call the offspring of a male Warlords and a female Command and Conquer? Front Lines! And like all offspring of two different species, this game is also sterile.luckily. We can only be glad this game will be unable to pass on its genes.

Front Lines is a turn based war strategy, in which you lead your little platoon of troops to battle and hopefully accomplish the mission you have accepted before the allotted number of turns have passed. Unfortunately, these missions can sometimes take ages because the game play is quite slow (although it might just be my computer.) I seem to recall waiting in front of my computer for approximately seven minutes before the computer player decided it was done moving its tanks around. The movement around the map is jerky, and can get extremely frustrating. If you have the patience however, the game does become quite enjoyable.

Although the sound is nothing special, it does accomplish its job. There are cute little wrrrrr-ing sounds went tank moves, and little booms when vehicles explode and guns are fired. The soundtrack is an enjoyable midi track that may drive you to the insertion of flaming Q-Tips into your ears if listened for too an extended period of time.

One plus of this game, is that it comes equipped with a map editor. Once you have become bored with the supplied maps, feel free to change and mess around with the terrain (put your platoon on an island surrounded by water and watch the infantry try to get to their mission points. oh the agony!) You can create legitimate maps as well, if you take the time to learn how the map editor works.

All in all, Front Lines is an ok game, but I believe it to be nothing special. I am a fan of games such as Star Craft and Command & Conquer, so I prefer real time strategy to turn based (the computer just takes too damn long!) Still, for a turn based strategy, this turned out ok, once you get passed the choppy animation and slow moving computer.

Compatibility Note:
Runs on XP, but without sound.
