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 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.

“Brave hero, you are my truest eye; my most skilled champion; my trusted commander! I put you in charge of the oblivious children of my sister-in-law. What buffoons! I have sent them on a ‘road trip’ of sorts. Protect them at all costs…”

Well, that’s not exactly the plot, but it may as well be. You have to protect a group of wandering adventures – and wandering is all they seem to do – that are completely oblivious to the myriad of mayhem and plethora of perils that surround them. All manner of badgering beast, evil magic, and natural disaster challenge you for the life of the adventures. The only weapon you have to defend them is your trusty…

Crossbow! This is a PC remake of an old arcade favorite offering EGA graphics, which are passable but certainly not a bull’s eye. The sound misses the mark consisting only of noises via the speaker, but at least they indicate the pending baddie about to beset your group.

DOSBox played the game (I’m on XP) but with some graphical glitches. VDMSound worked well, but I would suggest you “Cap the DOS timer frequency” and reduce the CPU usage.

Like a searing crossbow bolt to the neck, this game hurts at first, and then mercifully ends quickly! If you were a fan of the arcade game then this will hit the mark, otherwise you can find a better way to get shafted.
