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.

I'm a fan of the classic First Person Shooters like Wolfenstein 3D or Doom, but I had never heard about or played CyClones so let me tell you one thing: I wish I had, because the game is brilliant! CyClones is a game developed by Raven Software and was published in 1994, but sadly, it wasn't very popular.

You're facing an alien invasion carried out by CyClones or Cybernetic Clones who are actually human beings. You play as the cybernetic warrior called "Havoc," and your mission is to stop this invasion by disrupting the communication between the alien forces and their lider, and it means: kill'em all...

So, what is so special about this game? A lot of things! The first thing that caught my attention was the control. You can use the mouse and the keyboard to play as many of the today's FPS, and for 1994 that was something new. Another new thing was a tutorial level, where you can learn the basics of the game. There are also 3D maps of each area and you can configure it to your needs. Some things are the same like in most FPS, and you'll have to find ammo and new weapons as well as first aid kits and power-ups. However, your inventory is limited and you can drop items if you need to.

The interface was innovative for this genre, and you can access to the inventory, main menu and map by just right clicking on an icon. The graphics are very good for its time and the levels aren't as monotonous as they are in similar games. The music is somewhat annoying but the sounds are average (shots, doors, enemies dying...etc). You can also save and load anytime you want and I suggest you to do it everytime you enter an unknown area.

All in all, CyClones is a revolutionary and innovative game for the genre and if you like first-person shooters you're gonna have a good time. But like in most of all FPS's of that time, the mazes can get you tired after a while and the music doesn't help either. I'll give it a 4 points mark.

You'll be asked for the copy protection information. Just type anything in the field and press enter.
