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.

Road Hog! is the first and only game developed by Teacy Entertainment. The game is from 1995, meaning that it already had a lot of competiton in its time (Super Karts, BC Racers and Micro Machines 2, just to mention a few). So, does this game posess something that could put it apart from the competition?

In Road Hog! you control an unnamed fellow who is tired of being Mr. Good Guy, so he takes his car and starts driving fast and crazy. Furthermore, the only objective of the game is not just driving, but also being best at it, and thus appearing in a TV show called "Dozer & Mushbrain". However, the story is nothing but a facade, because once we finish the game, there's no outro showing our character in the TV set.

There are nine different tracks in total, all filled with color and different landscapes, opponent, obstacles and weather conditions. Each track is located in a different country, and while it never specifically mentions in which country they're in, we can recognize US, Argentina, Iceland, Australia, somewhere in India and others.

The game only has one gameplay mode, meaning that you will choose the starting track, and then play another four in order to win. If you loose any track you will have to start all over again, but as there is only 1 lap per track, it won't be long until you get it right.

Road Hog! gives you the ability to create your own track, and if you're like me, you must be thinking about something along the lines of Stunts track editor. Well, no. This editor works in a weird way: when you open it, you will see a track in first person perspective, and while the camera moves as a car, you can change some parameters like steepness, curviness, width, signs, opponents and another couple of options. So the editor its not only weird, but also inflexible, since you can't do things like creating your own path or adding obstacles in specific places.

In conclusion, the game gets really repetitive and the tracks are not usually very fun to play as they are mostly nothing but curves. Having an editor that's so limited like this one, Road Hog! doesn't invite you to replay it very much. While it is fun at first, it wears out rapidly, so enjoy it while it lasts!
