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.

UMS - the Ultimate Military Simulator, a. k a. Universal Military Simulator is a wargame where you can set up a battle and lead your side to the victory. This black & white game consists of two stages. First is a planning phase where you must set the moves and the status (attack or defend) of the troops. Then, when the two sides got the primary orders, you can start the turns of the battle phase. The troops will move according to their speed and order in eight turns by pha se. At the end of each turn, the ranged units can fire at the enemies in range.

When UMS came out in 1988, after seven years of developing, it made many innovations; It was one of the first wargames that offered intriguing isometric wire frame view of the battlefield, and an impressive AI that could properly manage its armies, following a common objective. UMS also contains a versatile army, map and scenario builder that is easy to use. Consequently, you can make additions to the four scenarios that come with the game (Arbela, Hastings, Marston, Waterloo without the prussians, Gettysburg). It also offers an interesting combat equation which takes into account various variables such as the unit’s strength, elevation, weapons, morale, status, quality and accuracy.

However, UMS has a lot of weak spots. The interface is very unfriendly and cold for the beginners and the game has no objectives for the attacker. It's simply a matter of destroying your enemy, or being destroyed. The lack of naval force is just a minor fault. Finally, the lack of color could be considered a minus, as well as the lack of sound and a very hard to use map.

Overall, UMS gets a 3 because it is worth a look if you want to experience a genre’s pioneer, but there many better strategy games with similar playing style out there. Consult the manual for further details.
