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.

You are the prince of the Great Kingdom (not the best name I've ever heard), and as a boy you watched your father (the king) die at the hands of Garth, a warlord mage who, after murdering your father, sent you away to live with a peasant, never to fulfill your destiny as king. Little did Garth know, however, that the peasant he sent you to live with was once the kingdom's greatest hero! For years, he has been training you to do battle with Garth, and now the day for you to set out on your quest is finally here.

The gameplay is quite good, but it can be tedious at times; every level is the same thing - find an item, bring it to a character, find the door that opens, exit, rinse, repeat. But it's not as easy as it sounds; the item that heals you to full health is quite rare, and to heal one health you need to get ten coins. With only eight health points, it can get quite annoying, as when you die you return to your last save with however much health you had when you saved, meaning that if you saved with one health you're most likely doomed.

There aren't too many enemies, but they do their part. There are spiders, weird plant-like creatures that shoot lightning, and a few others. You can increase the power of your attacks by finding power-ups, from a blue shot to an orange boomerang shot, and so on. There are some good platforming sections that have you jumping on collapsing platforms which re-form, so that when you have to come back, you can. There are also three skill levels to play at.

Sound effects are nothing but a bunch of beeps and boops. I don't really need to say anything else; there's not much to them. The music however, unlike the effects, is quite good. There are upbeat tempos, slower music, and pieces in-between. Although the music does use beeps and boops too, they sound more at home here, with good atmospheric noises in the background.

The graphics department is where the game takes a turn for the worse. They're outdated, as this game was made prior to the original Commander Keen series, but they're perfect for the game.

Moving, jumping, and attacking, is easy since there are no bugs in the control system. You use the arrows keys to move your character, CTRL to jump, and ALT to attack. Overall, a very good game, but because of its repetitive gameplay, I give it 3 out of 5.
