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 the old times, when almost everybody still used DOS, I was addicted to all racing games - just like this one. However, PC Rally falls into an average category.

There are three modes of play:

-Training: where you can practice and get used to the controls;
-Run Track: you just choose a track and run it (what a surprise);
-Championship: this one is for real, so let's talk a little bit more about it.

First thing to do in championship mode is to choose the difficulty setting: Easy, Medium or Hard. You will also have to pick a track where the race will occur. All tracks require that you complete 10 stages in order to proceed to the next one. After you made your choices, you'll have to pick up one of the two featured cars: Toyota Celica or Lancia Delta. You can also "upgrade" it if you got enough money.

The graphics are noting special for the time, as for a 1995 game they could be much better. The sounds are more noisy than enjoyable, especially at the game menu; however you can turn them off. As for the controls, you may choose the keys you want to use, which is a good feature. Now for the bad things: game play is quite bad because the car handling is unsatisfactory, or to be completely honest, its controling the damn thing is stressful to say the least. Another fault is the inexistence of a map showing your position in the track, so, unless you known the tracks very well, you can never tell when you're going to hit the end.

If you like rally games, then you will probably enjoy this one. I rate it with 3 out of 5.



The game runs smoothly in Windows XP; however if you want to hear sounds, you better use DOSBox or VDMSound
