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.

Today, Kennedy Space Flight Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida
*Buzzzzz*
Mission control reports an unknown spacecraft heading towards Neptune.

Check Fuel! 6.00 - OK
Check Nav Chart - Heading towards Neptune - OK
Initiate Countdown - 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - Lift off
[…]
- Captain ?
- Yes ?
- We lost the UFO. Mission control says its heading to the planet with 17 known moons.
- Errmm …

This is where UFO - A solar system odyssey's fun begins. Find out which planet it is that the UFO is heading to. Refer to the data bank if you do not know it or get more hints and spend some fuel with the landing capsule to explore the place where you last saw the UFO. Other hints can be such as "it is near a reddish, gaseous planet" or "at the fifth planet from the sun"...

Mission UFO is an educational game for kids to learn facts about our solar system but it still is some fun for the older people who are interested in some interesting facts about the planets and space missions. As I already told you it is your task to find the UFO that comes exploring our solar system. You hunt it from planet to planet, always getting new hints on the current location from mission control. Mind that you don't run out of fuel and guess the planets to travel correctly. Finally you meet the UFO and the alien life form in charge for that UFO. He/she/it tells you a few facts from where he/she/it came and you are being promoted by the head of mission control and the UFO Division director from NASA.

The graphics are nothing special but nice and the gameplay is fun! The sound mainly consists of some beeps and buzzes and the famous countdown (5 -4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - lift off) as real speech. The controls are just clicking with the mouse on the buttons on screen. Click on "radio" for hints, "nav chart" to choose your destination and "data bank" for information on our solar system. When you need some more hints use the hovercraft to reach the hint buttons on the planets surface. When you run out of fuel return to earth. That's it.

Even though this game is soooo simple I recommend it to everyone who cannot tell the planets order and to those who don't know how our planets look like. And, of course, I recommend it for all children who want to become astronauts! Give it a try and do not expect this to be a game like Elite or Wing Commander. This is just an educational quiz game but worth 4 points!
