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.
A classical chess game needs no more then 2 colors (black and white) and even those aren’t really considered to be colors. Still this game features full VGA graphics which makes it look really nice. Moving the pieces is done by the mouse, so you needn’t worry about typing the correct location of the piece.
The computerized opponent is very good (well depending on the level you set for the AI), but the game is by no means easy. So it does represent a challenge.
You can also set up a position on the board, so you can analyze a match. Also you can save your matches or analyze them.
Naturally you can choose to play the white or black pieces and you can even play against another human (unfortunately not online).
Basically this game offers you everything a solid game of chess should. You can even change and resume playing at another time or print out the moves made. You can ask the computer to show his reasoning behind a certain move, so you can even learn how the computer thinks. So in a way you can even learn from the computer.
All in all this is a great game for all true chess lovers. Definitely a must have!
