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 II: Nations at war, it’s the sequel of Railbird’s UMS (Ultimate Military Simulator) from 1988. I'll say it right away; give UMS II a chance only if you loved the first part. They added almost nothing in the second one, but let’s concentrate on those novelties so that you know what to expect from the sequel.

First of all, the gameplay remained equal - the command phase for moving and setting the status of your units, and the battle phase for executing commands in turn mode. The interface is worse than in the prequel in my opinion. The battle goes on according to the equation which was changed from the original UMS, so now you can set the importance of each variable. There aren't any army/map/scenario design tools so the possibility of making changes to the battle scenario equation is lost.

But UMS II is not a battle simulator such as its predecessor. It’s more of a campaign simulator, where you can fight against many opponents on large maps. These include ships, diplomatic postures, special squares (cities, ports, etc), supplies, production and recruitment centers. This gives the game some aspects of empire management. You can choose to build extra fortifications for a city, amply a port, recruit more troops or invest in production and recruitment points. There is also the possibility of a diplomatic victory so if you spend too many production points on building units, you will be defeated. The AI has been enhanced in this game, and you can now configure how the soldiers will attack and defend. A big improvement from UMS where you could only choose "Attack left flank" or "Attack center".

The new units that UMS II features are ships. Nothing too creative about them though; they are like any other unit, but with a marker that appears over the sea. There are also supply lines, but since I can't say anything good about this innovation, I won't say anything at all. Sounds? No thanks. As for graphics, colors are a nice and welcome addition. The transition from black and white to 16 color EGA mode is one of the true improvements of UMS II.
