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.

It’s 1931, Capone is out of the picture (thanks to the Untouchables – also downloadable at our site, but that’s another game) and Chicago needs a new king. Have you got what it takes?

Now, you should not expect a fast action game here, because King of Chicago is a thinking game. It’s much like Hidden Agenda or Yes Prime Minster.

You’re Pinky, an uprising mobster who wishes to take over the business and then run it. You’re on your way to become the top dog of Chicago. You often get in dilemmas like what to do next in such or such case. You are thinking about the alternatives. You need to choose your path out of the choices given. Every choice you make will influence the further development.

You’ll also meet people. They won’t be very “straight forward” with you, so watch out, they’re wise guys too and you should expect them to be backstabbing rats (just like you). If you press them too hard to make them speak their mind openly, they will start distrusting you.

First you need to make sure you have people backing you up, so you can take on the old man (the boss in retirement). You’ll need to earn their respect. You will have to blow up a little Barber Shop on the South side of the city (used to be Capone’s). This is one of the action scenes (you need to hit the lit window with a bomb from a car passing by quickly).

Then, the negotiations will begin, finding help to manage the town of the old boss, to become the top honcho. Remember, there are many ways for doing things, but not all choices are successful. After that, you are placed in charge and you have to make sure the boys will remember the example you set. If changing the boss is as easy as coming in and plugging him, then who is here to say that the same won’t happen to you?

Well you won’t really have too much time to think about that (although you should never show your weaknesses), because you’ll be too busy bribing politicians, organizing speakeasies, keeping your flame satisfied (now that’s a dame), and much more.

The game play is really brilliant. You get a combination of thinking and doing (with more plotting than shooting). Unfortunately you can’t save the game, you’ll need to play it from the beginning to the very end. Luckily the graphics (although 4 color CGA) are brilliant, so it’s not a problem being stuck with this game. The sound’s also fairly enjoyable (although it only supports PC speaker). All in all the game is a masterpiece.
