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.

From the manual:
I was canoeing quietly up the South Platte River when I suddenly heard shouts coming from the shore. I glimpsed a group of Pawnees between the trees, attacking an old Indian. I grabbed my faithful Betty, and pulled the trigger. Once again, my aim was good. The head Pawnee bit the dust. The other warriors, frightened by "the stick that spits fire" ran away immediately. I rushed over to the old man. He was a Cheyenne big chief. I noticed he was tied to the ground by a length of rope connected to a heavy wooden peg. I recognized this as a Cheyenne death ritual-an aged Indian will tie himself this way in an enemy's territory, so he may die the death of a warrior.

The man was dying. He had been wounded in three places. He held out a piece of parchment to me, and whispered in a weak voice, "Help me, I am dying, I have lived the life of a warrior, now I die like one... but also I must be buried as one to enter the Happy Hunting ground. Do this for me, and I will make you rich."

And thus a lonely trapper, armed with his trusty rifle ‘Betty’, a hatchet and a knife, finds himself in a hostile land, full of peril and danger awaiting him, while he tries to find Pocahontas’ mine.

Apart from fighting you’ll need to navigate through the wilderness, jump over obstacles, ride a canoe (and fight the natives off with the paddle), climb, find stuff and trade it... There’s a lot to do, so you won’t get bored. This game is a very good mixture between action and adventure genres, although the adventure part lacks some depth in the story plotline (were it not for the manual, you probably wouldn’t even know what the plot was).

The graphics (you can choose either EGA or VGA mode) art very nice (especially for 1990), but there’s not much music and sound. The game comes in two languages (English and German). The controls are OK once you get used to them (read the manual to learn the controls), although at first they do seem a bit complicated. Every now and again this game will save the location you are at. Unfortunately you can’t save whenever you want. So in order to help you with the game, the walkthrough is included.

All in all, what can I say? It’s a nicely made game that you’ll enjoy playing, but it won’t really fascinate you. All the good sides this game has surely put it above average games, yet it’s not one of the greats. That’s why I’m giving it a 4.
