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.
And here’s the game that completes the Spellcasting Trilogy. Again, the game is enjoyable, funny, with intelligent humor, nutty and with a lot of sex. This seems to be the trademark of Legend Entertainment Company. You are (for the last time) young Ernie Eaglebeak, a wannabe wizard. And again it’s the charms of the fairer sex you have that have taken over your senses. First you’ll have a hot blonde professor-like creature explain to you the story of the first two parts of the game and then off to the beach (hurrah, a beach party).
GRAPHICS - SOUND - GAMEPLAY
There is still no animation (you might say they stayed true to the original game, or you might say they simply haven’t improved the game any), so the fanatics of graphic adventures will not find much here. However, the picture screen does the job. The music is simple but nice (but still no improvement).
The whole game is a mix between a graphic and text adventure. There is a whole bunch of text commands you can type or select with mouse from the command menu at the bottom right of the screen. The whole screen consists of four basic parts. At the top right is the graphic screen, to left is the navigation compass with some basic game control buttons, bottom left are two menus with verb lists and inventory stuff or some game characters and bottom right is the game's description of places and shows inventory stuff as the commands that you type or select with mouse. Between the top and bottom screens is a horizontal window that gives some short information of places or things that you find in the game, as well as the time and the day of the week. Something more about the graphic screen. A short appearance of the place you are, the map of the area you are at, your inventory and your status (score, moves, magic level) are shown there. Some commands can be executed with the mouse in the graphic window. Single click is the LOOK command and double click on the object of your interest is the GET/OPEN command. Clicking on the direction of the compass that is highlighted makes you go to that direction. With the HELP command you will get a menu where you can configure the game. With the F4 button, the whole game transforms to a text-adventure. Typing CAST will show you all the characters in the game that you have met, which is very useful to players with a weak memory, like me.
ACTION - PUZZLES - ATMOSPHERE
The atmosphere in the game is fantastic. That’s because an incredible effort was made in making the puzzles. The game has several chapters. I could say that the puzzles are for more experienced adventurers. If you are an old school adventurer, good at puzzles, lover of smart scenarios, or you believe that laughing makes you live longer, then this game is for you. Enjoy it.
