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.

Clockwiser is a simple yet difficult puzzle game by Team Hoi. In each level, you have a set of blocks on the left side of screen and another set on the right side. Your goal is to move the blocks on the left side so they match the ones on the right side, and all you can do is move the blocks on the left side by selecting a bunch of them and rotating them either clockwise or counter-clockwise, as the title implies.

You have a time limit to complete each level, which starts counting as soon as you make your first move. To move the blocks, you hold-and-drag the mouse to draw a box around them, and then use the buttons on the bottom-left to rotate them. The buttons on the bottom-right allow you to restart or quit the level. After each level you get a password in case you want to return to it later.

The game has 100 levels, ranging from Easy-Peasy, which are mainly to guide you through the basics of the game, to Impossible, where you only have a few seconds to complete brain-wrecking levels. And if they're not enough, there's also a built-in level editor to add to the fun. In case you're colour blind, the game has a Colour setting so you can tell apart the differently coloured blocks.

There's various block types in the game, each with their own unique behaviour:
Coloured blocks - The standard behaviour: destroyable, movable and affected by gravity.
Metal - Indestructible, unmovable and unaffected by gravity.
Bricks - Unaffected by gravity.
Golden - Unmovable.
Bombs - Blow up when dropped.
Diamonds - Self-replicate when dropped.
Teleport Pods (multi-coloured) - Blocks dropped on top of them are teleported from one pod to the other.
Anti Gravity (arrow on top) - Blocks over them aren't affected by gravity.

The graphics and sound are nothing breath-taking, but still good enough for a puzzle game. Overall, this is a very original puzzle game which will keep any puzzle fan hooked for hours, trying to figure out the right moves to complete each level, so I give it a 5.

On the copy-protection screen, just press any letter. Soundcard is automatically detected. The game will not play sound under Windows XP.

ONLINE VERSION: On July 10th, 2008, Team Hoi has released an online remake of Clockwiser. The remake can be played for free at www.Playclockwiser.com.
