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.

And, I might add, enjoy your stay.

Metal Mutant is an action game in which you control a cyborg capable of changing its shape and in that way utilize a variety of weapons and equipment. You’ll have to guide your metal character through a ton of different areas and screens, each with their own themes, puzzles and enemies.

In practice this will often mean progressing from screen to screen using a sort of trial-and-error method. You’ll find out how to pass a screen, which weapons and tactics to use in another and how to solve a problem in the next. In the end you’ll know how to pass each screen in the best possible fashion, and move on to the next save point. This process can be as annoying as it is rewarding at times, however you’re bound to get it right in the end. Some levels are more complex, and will require a bit of moving back and forth between screens as well.

Your character is capable of changing into a dinosaur, tank and its normal humanoid form. Each has its own equipment and weapons you need to use in various situations. Examples are the dinosaur’s flaming breath, useful against clouds of bugs, and the humanoid’s magnetic hook, useful for getting out of sticky situations. Be sure to stay familiar with the various functions of the different forms, as you’ll have to use them all at one time or another, and you’ll find yourself changing forms quickly and often within some screens.

This naturally brings us to the controls, which I felt to be a bit awkward. To activate equipment you’ll have to press and hold SHIFT and use the different numpad keys. You’ll get used to it after a while, though. As a hint, there’s a more defined way to change shape: F1 for humanoid, F2 for dinosaur and F3 for tank form. The keypad controls only forward your shape by one step (Humanoid > Dinosaur > Tank), which can prove annoying at times.

The graphics are nicely made, although not very special. The screens are usually interesting, and most of them contain something to look at. Sound is pretty sparse, and can become irritating after a while, however the game doesn’t really need it anyway. The text you get with some enemies and with some objects or screens is also interesting, and makes progress itself a reward for your efforts.

In the end this game is certainly a lot of fun to play. With interesting levels and gameplay, you’ll certainly be able to lose a few hours to this game.
