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.

In this game you take control of J-Bird, whatever this abbreviation may mean. The goal is to change all tiles on a pyramid to appropriate ones. To do this you must jump onto them while avoiding enemies.

Despite the good looks of our hero, it doesn't have only friends. Dangerous red spheres roam whole pyramid. They will fall off quickly, but touching them surely is not a wise thing to do. Also, infamous bad luck bringing black cats may appear at the bottom of the level. They are more dangerous than spheres because they can jump in all directions like J-Bird. Fortunately they do not deign to follow him too much. But the most irritating creatures are frogs. They behave like the red spheres with several differences. Frogs are faster, edible (just jump into them) and revert any tile they jump on to previous state. In other words some of your work will be destroyed. May be annoying sometimes. As if this wasn't enough, sometimes a big red sphere may be seen. Beware for they contain arch-enemy of J-Bird: feared King-Bo the snake. It treats our bird as a good source of food and it is constantly hungry. It will chase you even off-screen. There is a way to cheat it. Be sure to find it.

The good news is that player may defend himself. Several wings are scattered around the pyramid. Jumping into them allows J-Bird to fly to the top of the level. Sometimes this may save your nose but remember that each pair can be used only once. If you are lucky enough, a blue sphere may appear. Catching it will freeze enemies for some seconds and provide additional points. Accumulating certain score brings you a new life.

Four levels of difficulty are offered. High score table keeps separate lists for each of them. At novice playing may be boring, intermediate should suit best beginners. Advanced provides more fun because you will have to display good reflexes in certain situations and brutal is the wildest mode. By selecting the last one makes you to face a storm! High dexterity recommended.

The game supports only PC speaker sound. Surprisingly it isn't bad. Pixels are visible throughout the game but high playability nullifies this.

J-Bird is to be recommended for coffee break playing. It is fast and not too absorbing so you can quit anytime. Enemies' completely random moving (except the King-Bo) ensures that player has to avoid close confrontation and play hide & seek with his foes. Simply saying J-Bird is a cat and mouse game worth playing, with you being the latter.
