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.
The year is 50 BC. All Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well... not entirely.
Guide our well-known heroes as they travel all over the Roman Empire, trying to bring a souvenir from every country they cross. A nice game to play for a while, but that's where the story ends.
This is a classic arcade game: it doesn't have a storyline as such. Just move forwards all the time, and, with a bit of luck, you'll succeed. It looks nice: there are lots of details (as many as you can get out of 320x200 pixels) and smoothly animated characters (which is what I liked most).
Asterix & Obelix could be compared to Aladdin as far as the visual impression is concerned. Several soundcards are supported.
It's much more fun to play it in two player mode, with both Asterix and Obelix at the same time, so I recommend you get yourself a second player for this one.
