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.

Remember the good old days when they had the ads of some laserdisc games in the magazines. Classics like Dragons Lair and Space ace ... *sigh*
I always wanted to play them for the graphics were so great cartoon-like that you thought it was an interactive movie (actually they sold them as interactive movies). But when I got Dragons Lair then I must confess that there was just disappointment. The only actions you could interact were pressing the joystick buttons at the right time.

If you look at Guy Spy, you will see that it almost looks like Dragons Lair or Space Ace. But now it‘s not your girlfriend that has been kidnapped. The evil fascist “von Max” has almost finished his dooms-day machine that is going to kill the human race. The only thing he‘s missing are some rare crystals. Max himself is quite busy so he sends out his soldiers to find those crystals. Having so many foes around was noticed by the US and they decide to activate our hero Guy Spy to roam around the planet and stop von Max to finish his evil plans.

The action begins in the subway of Berlin where some of the evil guys shoot at poor Guy who only wants to get his train. After killing them all Guy gets into his train to Switzerland where he takes the cable railway to get onto the mountain. Directly after starting to enjoy the view Guy gets attacked again. This time it‘s the bad guys that shoot at him and throw dynamite. After all of them are killed you succeed to the next level .... and so on.

The graphics are fantastic - and just seeing the games makes you think that it‘s going to be surely an evergreen! But playing the game turns out to be a torture. The controls are somehow laggy. Your character moves as fluently as he is slow. You will need to restart each mission several times to finish it because you will mess it again and again just because our little hero doesn‘t do what you like him to do. And do yourself a favour and play without sound. The effects are OK but the music will kill every last nerve even of the deaf among us.

I personally do not like this game too much even though I love the looks of it. I think the developers should have spent some more time in making the controls controllable and maybe the music more melodic. The graphics at least make it worth trying this game yourself.

So this is unfortunately just a 2 out of 5 point for this game.
