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.

Gemfire is a strategy game set in the fantasy world of Ishmeria, a friendly world where humans, elves, fairies and other creatures live in peace. Or at least it once was... An evil wizard used the powers of a Fire Dragon to destroy the peace and nearly destroyed the world. It was only through the joined forces of the six mightiest wizards that the beast was stopped and trapped within a jewel, but the evil wizard cast a curse on the wizards trapping them inside six different jewels. The seven jewels were embedded into a crown.

Now the evil King Eselred wants to use the Dragon's powers to his own schemes. His daughter Princess Robyn managed to free the wizards from their prisons, and it is now up to them to stop the evil king. So the story begins.

Gemfire is a solid game that both looks and plays beautifully. The game is a typical strategy game, where the aim is to defeat all the regions by any means nessecary. You will appoint an advisor at the beginning of the game, and allthough the advisor comes in handy from time to time, it is ultimately up to you to do everything you need to succeed. You will also be helped by one of the six wizards, and each one is different in both strength and type of attack.

As for the actual battles, KOEI made a nice addition to this game. You no longer have to vanquish all the enemy forces to win the battle, it is enough to capture the enemy base. This means that it is extremely important to defend you base, and this is where fences come in handy. Infantry soldiers have the ability to build fences to slow down the enemy (building fences is difficult, so don't give up if your soldier don't succeed the first time). Another nice thing is that you get different bonuses depending on how you attack an enemy unit. This goes for frontal, flanking and rear attacks, but also for projectile weaponry.

Graphically this game is marvellous, and each unit has their own unique fighting animations. The music is also very pleasing. Gemfire is a very nice game that is easy to learn, but hard to win. Recommended to anyone who likes this genre.

The game supports multiplayer up to 4 players.
