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.

Hello, I’m happy to inform you, that in order to play this game you need to be quite dead, so please commence the download, extract the archive, start the MENU file and kick the bucket in order to be the Scapeghost.

It’s all quite simple. There’s a dirty detective in town involved with drugs and he needs someone to pin it on. You just died making you his scapegoat. But as you find no peace in the afterlife you return to haunt the world of the living as a ghost, thus the title Scapeghost.

The game has one of the best graphics I’ve ever seen in a text based adventure and it supports different graphic modes. There’s no animation and sound though. You are able to save or load the game and off course restart.

The game consists of three parts:

- November Graveyard
- Haunted House
- Poltergeist

Each can be played separately, but I strongly urge you to play the game from the beginning of part one, to the end of part three.

You can find a hintbook HERE, but for those that simply wish to win the game by the fastest shortcut I’ve also included a walkthrough as an extra.

So what’s the game about?

As I already said, you’re being framed by a corrupt detective. He’s hiding drugs at the cemetery itself, where also the deliveries and pick ups are being made. As a ghost you are now stranded at the cemetery, without a living soul in sight. There are however other dead ones around.

Do you remember the movie Ghost? Well this game is (although not the PC version of it) is older then the movie (the C64 version was made in 1989), so one can claim they got some ideas from here. Remember Patrick Swayze learning how to manipulate with physical objects? Well, that’s your first task. You start by picking up gravel and leaves and petals, only to strengthen your spirit.

So it’s a very good game I really enjoyed on the old C64 and loved to play again on the PC. So I hope you’ll all have as much fun playing it, although it’s not the easiest of games (without a walkthrough).
