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.

STORY

There has been a crime. Gold has mysteriously disappeared from the bank vault, and no-one can work out how it happened. The gold just seemed to vanish before people's eyes. The RGB (a secret Government Agent that solves unusual problems) have been investigating this crime for the last 6 months, but they are completely baffled. Out of desperation, they hire a fortune teller to help them. They ask the fortune teller to pick a name from the phone book. Being psychic, the fortune teller will be drawn to a name that can hopefully solve this case. Well, that's the theory anyway.

This is where you come in. You are Mark Hopper, and you are just a normal teenager. Fate, however, has stepped in, and you have been chosen by the fortune teller. The Head of RGB persuades you to help by promising to make you an official secret agent once the case has been solved. Well, girls just LOVE secret agents, right? How can you say no?

To begin with, you are sent to training camp, so you can learn the basics of what being a secret agent is all about. Here, you must pass 3 trials in order to prove your worth. After you have successfully completed the trials, you are sent out on your first mission. You must investigate a local businessman who has been acting very suspiciously recently. This businessman has been spending a lot of money on some very unusual items. What's more, he has been paying by cash! Could he be involved with the missing gold? It's your job to find a way into his mansion and investigate things. Unfortunately, that is easier said than done!

GAMEPLAY
Teenagent is a good old-fashioned adventure game that began life as a commercial game, but was released as freeware in 1999. The game is mouse controlled, and is very easy to use. Click anywhere on the screen to make Mark walk there. Right-click on something to get a description of it, and left click to talk to someone or use an item. Drag your cursor to the top of the screen (leave it there for a second or two) to see your inventory items. To use an item from your inventory, simply left-click on it, then drag it onto the game window. Mark will only enter a new location when you left-click on that exit. You can save, load, or quit a game at any time by pressing F1.

There is a lot of humour in this game, and you will find yourself chuckling at a lot of the things that Mark (and other characters) say. Most of the puzzles are fairly logical, but some of the puzzles are quite bizarre. You will need a lot of imagination to work things out, but it is well worth persevering. Where else could an average teenager become a secret agent?

GRAPHICS
Backgrounds are very bright and colourful, and have an early Sierra 'feel' to it. Metropolis has paid a lot of attention to detail - things hanging on the wall, butterflies fluttering around, even the pigeon on the post . There are so many interesting things to see. The inventory screen is very effective, as a lot of the icons are animated. It's funny to see the mouse scampering around, or the fan buzzing away. This gives a lot of appeal to the game.

MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS
The music for Teenagent is nice and cheerful, and really seems to fit the style of the game. It changes every so often, so you get a variety. There are a lot of good sound effects in this game. Things such as climbing post at the mud pool, doors opening, the sound of the chainsaw, and John Noty shooting at you were fun to hear. Even picking up items and combining objects in your inventory had their own unique sound.

CHARACTERS
There are a few characters in this game that you will enjoy meeting. I liked Sergeant at the training camp, as well as John Noty himself. The Professor made me laugh, as he forgot how he made his inventions. Even squirrel in the tree seemed to be mocking you (hee hee). My favourite was Mike the robo-safe. He was a robot with attitude!!!

SUMMARY
This is a good, old fashioned adventure game at heart, and I had fun playing it. The story is well written, with a lot of funny dialogue. The graphics are nice and cheerful, with a lot of attention to detail. Even the inventory screen has some interesting animated cursors. Some of the puzzles are slightly illogical, but you get a good feeling after you have finally solved them. I was impressed with a lot of the sound effects. Music is lively, but doesn't overpower the game. All in all, Teenagent is a game well worth playing.
