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.

Grand Monster Slam is a rather simple, but yet entertaining sports game. It has a quite original fantasy background and may be considered as predecessor of M.U.D.S., which was released one year later. The game’s goal is easy: There are two players on the opposite sides of a field, who have to kick small furballs, called Beloms, to the other side. When one player has managed to kick all balls to the other side, he can start his homerun and has won the match. The player takes the role of a dwarven player and has to make his way through the three leagues of the Grand Monster Slam. Each league consists of eight players from various races, each race having different attributes, like strength, speed, etc. In order to win a match, you should try to knock your opponent down by hitting him with beloms.

Whenever you or your opponent kick a Belom out of the field’s bounds, the other player has the opportunity of a penalty kick. A small, duck-like creature comes to the field and is kicked to the other side. The opponent has to catch this creature in order to prevent himself from getting some Beloms from the other side. There are three possible kicks, right, middle and left. The catcher may also decide to move to one of this directions or to stay in the middle. So you always have a chance of one out of three to catch the duck.

Besides the main game, there are two small challenges as interjections in the tournament. First, in the “Revenge of the Beloms” the player has to defend himself against these small furballs, he used to kick around a minute earlier. You get a stuffed paddle and have to push them back. The Beloms attack from eight directions, from whose you are able to defend six at one time. To defend the remaining two directions, you have to change your base position and turn around. This is rather easy, when you’ve trained a bit. The other game is called “Faulton Feeding” and is used to qualify you for the next round. Here you have to kick Beloms into the Faulton’s mouths. Two hits are needed to be qualified for the second league, four hits for the third one. The matches in higher leagues become more difficult, as obstacles like a wall are set in the middle of the field. So you have to be careful, not to knock out yourself with Beloms bouncing back from the wall.

The game can either be controlled by keyboard or joystick. The keyboard controls are easy to understand. You may move to the left or right using the cursor keys and kick the Beloms with space as fire button. The longer you press fire, the higher your kick will be. If you press left or right while holding the fire-key the shot will be directed into this direction. I haven’t tried the joystick controls, but they should work similar. In the “Revenge of the Beloms” holding space and pressing left/right will change your base position. Alltogether the controls are quite intuitive ans simple. For all further questions regarding this point, you may take a look at the manual, which is included in the extras section.

The game features EGA grafics and a horrible noise from your beeper, when on the title screen. Luckily this noise stops afterwards and the beeper keeps silent. This is the main flaw of the game, but not too bad, as the game is fun even without sounds.

All in all, this game is a really funny distraction, suitable for your coffee break or if you want to take your mind off your homework for a while. It has an interesting concept, but lacks some technical features like sounds or a mouse control, which were not too uncommon for the time it was released. Therefore it gets a moderate rating of three, which shouldn’t prevent anyone from downloading it, however. Last but not least it is playable again and again without loosing its charme.
