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.

Every now and then you come across a game, so simple, so pure, that just screams for attention. PC-Man is one of these games, despite it’s classification as a clone, PC-Man does what almost no other game as done before, it’s better than its source material.

You may ask me why a game that’s size is smaller than this review’s, could receive a perfect five. It’s simple. PC-Man does all a game needs to do, it’s fun, so amazingly fun that it drags you back every time. The premise of the game couldn’t be dumber, and everyone knows what it is. You are a round shaped creature, which has only one purpose in life, to consume small square dots while being pursued by ghosts that for some reason chose to haunt a badly designed maze. You, as Pac-Man (or PC-Man in this case), travel around trying to avoid the ghosts and consume as many pellets as possible, once you have collected all of them, a winner is you. It sounds simple, but there’s a twist, the ghosts are all faster than you, so what do you do? You consume larger pellets that will render the ghosts edible for a short while, but even if you devour them they’ll soon return, and that’s all to it.

Sound… Mmm… Okay, so if you were expecting a orchestra to compose a monumental score for this game your hopes are going to be crushed like so many cockroaches in a mother’s kitchen. The most you will receive is some catchy bleeping music for the title screen, and then some more beeping noises as you devour pellets. But wait! There’s more! When you eat ghosts or larger pellets, the sound changes! It’s magical! Not only that, but a small tune fun tune plays upon your death! How can you ask for more?

Now don’t get me started on the graphics. You wouldn’t expect a game so old to have any visual appeal at all, so don’t go looking for any. Surprisingly, I myself enjoyed the graphics, just because unlike most other CGA graphic games, my retinas did not burn away, nor did my eyes separate from their sockets, and if I can play a vintage game without any eye-sores, then that is certainly good enough for me.

So, now you’re probably wondering what you should do. If you came this far, then you’re certainly interested. Go play the game! If you looked at the meager screens and read what I had to say with doubt, give the game a chance, I assure that you’ll find at least a little satisfaction. All in all, I couldn’t have hoped for a better game than PC-Man, not since the original flat panel Pac-Man have I ever been this addicted.
