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.
As some of you might know, I'm not really a sportsman. My favorite sports are pool, darts, chess, air hockey etc. But I do like one sport (if you call it that) which requires some physical activity. It's called bowling. (Darn you, Fred Flintstone – you're a bad, bad influence!)
There's not much to say about this bowling game. It's nice and helps to pass the time, but you probably won't get stuck on it. The graphics are nice and the animation looks good. There are solid sounds that make you feel like you're really in a bowling alley. You can simply bowl a game or two and try to beat your personal record, or you can play against somebody (player or computer). The game offers you yet another option, and that's arcade-style bowling, in which you get one pin to knock down. You get to choose your shirt color and whether you're left- or right-handed. If you choose to play a tournament, you need three players; you can create them or load them if you created some previously.
I’d give this game a 3, which sounds nice and swell, but the game has one major downside: repetitive gameplay. But then again, you can't seriously hope for mind-boggling puzzles in a bowling game, can you? You get to bowl, so timing and precision are everything! Do you have the nerve to play this game?
