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.

Here’s yet another real oldie. Oddly enough this was always one of my least favorite games (no matter what system I played it on) and my opinion still stands. I mean, the game is quite ridiculous.

You’re a little guy named Dug and you need to dig (or are you Dig who used to dug). You have a water pump in your hand to defend yourself against the monsters. You use it by getting close to the monsters and rapidly hitting the fire button which inflates them until they finally explode.

And just what kind of monsters are we talking about? It’s the variety that lives under the surface and needs to be crushed by rocks you dig around. Just remember, you don’t get to kill the dragon looking one. He’s a sort of a boss who escapes from one level to the next. If you drop a rock on him, you’ll waste a perfectly sculptured underground weapon. And not to forget, all the monsters can miraculously move through the ground without shoveling it out of the way. That means they may turn up right next to you, and as you walk slower than them, they’ll simply kill you.

This game was just a disappointment to me. To kill a monster you can either stand under a rock (press up towards it to wait there) and then move away in time so the rock squishes it, or simply use the pump to inflate and explode it. But if your timing is off, you’ll die. This gets repetitive very soon, so you might wanna reconsider playing this game after a few levels (you can see which level you’re on by counting the daisies in the top right corner).

A below average game (even though it’s one from way back), which goes to prove that not all oldies are great (although the sound was OK and the graphic average for the time of its creation).
