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.

Well, if you know snooker, you’ll know almost all there is to know about this game.

You can play against another player or against the computer. If you choose to play against the computer you have four difficulty levels to choose from. The higher the difficulty level, the lesser are the chances of the opponent making a mistake and opponents will also snooker (try to force you into a mistake) if necessary.

Basically that’s all you need to know, but I’ll give you some more info. The game features a view of the table, where you can see the entire table (from either side) half the table, or have a close look at the balls. This means you’ll be leaning over the table having the white ball in your sight and depending on your position, you’ll see the rest of the table. This is used for adjusting your shot. You can even bring out the white line (from the menu), that will show you where the white ball will go (really helpful when precision is needed).

You get to adjust the strength of the shoot, the spin the position and elevation of the cue or you can put some chalk on the cue if you want (all of that plus changing vies can be done by clicking the little icons in the menu).

After you decide to take a shot your view will follow the white ball. You might get a bit dizzy if the shot was really strong :) You need to sink a red ball, and then you get to select one of the colored balls (that’s the easiest way to describe what to do in snooker) and to select the color, you simple need to click on the ball you’ll aim for. When all the balls are sunk, the winner is the person with most points. If you make a mistake (sink the white ball, hit or sink a wrong ball) your opponent gets the point and can either shoot next or force you to shoot again.

The sounds in the game are almost nonexistent, but the graphics are quite nice. You get the 3D view that follows the ball. As a little extra, there are also flies that start flying around the balls if you take too much time to shoot, or the balls may even tease you by making funny little faces (non of which effects the game really).

The game also features a really neat trick-shot editor. This means you get to set up the table and perform a trick shoot. Those can be really fun, but can also be a good way of practicing (otherwise there’s a two player practicing mode as well).

All in all it’s a pleasant snooker game that all who like snooker will probably enjoy, but it might leave the non-snooker fans a bit hungry. Have fun!
