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.

For a long time, KOEI used their resources on making realistic strategy games based on asian history, but this time they put their efforts into making a very good and accurate gaming version of the American War of Independence. In Liberty or Death you play as either the American or the British forces, trying to take supreme control over the American continent.

Playing as the Brits will be easier as they had more resources, but veteran gamers should give the American forces a go. Once you select you country, you have to appoint your Commander-in-Chief. This will be your key player, and must be protected at all costs. If you loose your Commander, you will loose the war as well. So play it safe with him, and withdraw him from combat if things turn bad.

As usual with KOEI games, you can use both your mouse and keyboard for control. Personally I would recommend using the num-pad for the battles, as the mouse has an ability to hide itself from time to time.

The graphic is pleasing for the most, but the battlefields are just ugly. This is mostly due to the fact that the old KOEI games used a really weird resolution (640x200 pixels) and the fact that they tried to use as few colors as possible (which means that the most screens have less than 10 colors in them). Why KOEI decided to do this to their games is a mystery, but it does give their games a unique touch you won't find in other games.

All in all Liberty or Death is a decent strategy game, that covers an important era in the American history.

The game supports multiplayer up to 2 players.
