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.

This is paratrooper; one of the great CGA-classics of it’s time. I think many gamers began playing this game long ago on some computer now long forgotten. This is the chance to relive old times.

There is not much else to tell about the game really, besides that even now it’s still loads of fun. You control a big gun in the center of the screen and have to shoot down enemy helicopters, planes, bombs and paratroopers. You need to be particularly careful with paratroopers and bombs. Once 4 paratroopers have landed on any one side of your gun, they’ll be able to climb up to it and destroy it. Luckily you can kill paratroopers that are already on the ground by shooting another paratrooper’s chute when he’s above him. Sadistic, but effective. The bombs are even more dangerous than paratroopers. They’ll destroy you in one hit and every fighter pilot has a deadly aim…

You’ll be defending your gun against wave after wave of choppers and planes. Each wave of paratrooper dropping choppers is followed by a wave of bomb dropping planes. Every time you survived both waves the action gets more intense.

As such you’ll not really be fighting for survival; you’ll be fighting to reach the highest possible score. Every chopper and plane will earn you ten points; every paratrooper (even when it’s already on the ground) will earn you five. A bomb will earn you twenty points. Getting a high score isn’t just about filling the skies with bullets, though, as every shot fired will cost you one point.

The controls are equally simple. You start moving the cannon left or right by tapping a directional key. The up arrow will fire a bullet and stop the gun. The continued gun movement can be frustrating at first, but once you get the hang of it it’s a lot of fun.

The CGA graphics are nothing fancy, but easy on the eyes. A plus as the game will get hectic very quickly. And for those who have fond memories of this game, there is the soundtrack consisting of the various combinations of pc-speaker meeps we all love (It may just be me, but they really aren’t that annoying in this game). Go on people, start shooting and have fun!
