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 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 a fun little game that gave me quite a few problems before I could run it for the first time. Well I don’t know why because I didn’t change anything, but can run it normally now – just select either keyboard or joystick – and a soundblaster at the beginning of the game.

So what’s the game all about?

There’s a huge ship that is about to sink and there are scientist aboard the ship. But being geniuses only in theory, they can’t get them selves out of the predicaments that they are in. It really takes an action hero like yourself to pull some switches that allow the scientists to leave the level! Oh, not to mention you must be a really sharp mind to figure out that if you’re about to sink and have oxygen tanks on the wall, it might be a good idea to use them.

So basically this game has you running, jumping and swimming around the levels trying to get all the scientists to the exit. Once those science guys reach it they’ll just make a funny “whooee” noise and leave you standing there. Anyway after the last scientist leaves, an exit opens up for you and guess what... It leads to the very next level!

The game is strangely addictive, so I highly recommend it, but I have to warn you that it can get frustrating also! Remember to press F10 to enter the menu (so you won't have to restart the game on level one each time)! This information was supplied by a fan of the game, who goes by the name of Bypasser!

Otherwise the game features nice graphics, quite pleasant sound, solid controls, smooth animation and fun gameplay. So once again I warmly recomend this game to you!
