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.

This is one of the last great Pinballs by the 21st Century Entertainment. The idea for it is unique actually.

Last pinball game I reviewed was Pinball Fantasies, and I said something like:
“A plot? It’s a pinball game for crying out loud!”

This game proves me corrected. After starting the game, you’ll select the difficulty level and be given an option to restart a saved game. A saved pinball game? That’s a new one. Next you’ll be taken to a rather unimaginative table. Don’t worry, you’re not really playing yet. This only serves to decide, which table (location) you’ll start the game at. The one that is lit at the time the ball escapes you, is your starting location.

And now, you’re on the way to your first table. You’ll get bonus options for unlocking a secret table. Once you lit the name of this table, you’ll be traveling to the next one. You need to steer the vehicle you’re given (even an ocean liner near the Bermuda Triangle) to your next location in the given time.

Once you complete all the tables around the world, you’ll complete the game. But it’s not as easy as it sounds.

You won’t be loosing balls. You’ll see boxes with a numbers at the bottom of the screen. When your ball enters such a box, the number will lower. Once the numbers reach 0 you’ll loose a ball.

The scoring seems quite complex, but then again, this is not a pinball game you’d play for reaching the highest score. No, you’ll need to tour the world and get to the next location, rather then to improve your own personal best score at a table of your choosing.

So finally, this is a pinball with a twist.

The graphics are very nice and representative of the location you’re at. The sounds are OK, but nothing really special (they’re generally not going on your nerves). And the game shows certain variety, by letting you drive around from location to location.

At every table there’s something different to do, but the main premise is the same – lit up the name of the table and go on!

For the very novelty of the idea, this game would already deserve a 5. Adding the flawless gameplay doesn’t hurt either. I should only warn all the DOSBox users to speed up the computer. The game is playable at low speeds as well, but not nearly as much fun.
