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.

I could not believe my luck! While staying at Rainwife’s I went through her old computer, the one she keeps in the cellar and found this little beauty installed!

That’s right, it’s Les Manley in Search for The King. Now for all you who don’t know who Les Manley is, let me just say, he’s the guy sitting next to Larry in a singles bar wondering what went wrong and how did they all get away.

The graphics in this game are nice (especially the opening scene) and what you hear from the speakers doesn’t get on your nerves. The interface is simple enough to use (you move with the cursor keys and type in the commands), but I would prefer a fully clickable adventure game.

Now as for the plot... You are the guy who puts in the plugs and your bosses are offering a lot of money to the guy, who can find the king. You are determined to do just that – find the king (and off course collect the money). Did I mention you want to do all that during your lunch brake?
Well off you go to find the king and there is also a walkthrough included to help you on your journey if you ever get stuck (and trust me, you probably will – I know I got stuck many times). The thing is that in this game there aren’t any real hints to the puzzles (I never would have figured out that I have to get another guy’s dreams). Although if you think about it for a while, the puzzles aren’t that unrealistic (need a key from the boss, need to distract the boss, need to get his secretary in so he’d look at her nicely shaped attractive parts of the body and won’t be watching the key – makes sense).

On your venture you will meet Helmut (if you played part two – also hosted on our site – you know who Helmut is), who will help you with your task. Also you will meet some gorgeous women and you will get in some deep elephant pooh-pooh. At that point you’ll be really glad you didn’t have that new smell-o-vision chip card installed on your computer.

So all in all this game could have been much better (there were much better games on the market at that time), but the game is still worth playing. Especially if you liked part II, which is already on our site.
