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.

Thanks to guesst some aditional information has been added:
This game was made by none other than Jordan Mechner. Jordan Mechner was more an independent film maker than a game maker when he started writing Karateka, hense the reason for the cinematic quality that had never been seen before. After Karateka Mr. Mechner went on to refine his digital story telling prowis producing Prince of Persia and Prince of Persia 2.

An evil overlord has kidnapped the love of your life. You reach his palace on a high mountain and Karateka begins. It was an excellent game when it came out and it still hasn't lost much.

The graphics are CGA, but they still look nice (they don't hurt your eyes), you can easily recognize what's what suppose to be,and so on. It even doesn't look pixelated (which is an excellent achievment). The sound is PC speaker, but not unpleasant and the game features something I think no other game before ever did – CUT SCENES!!!

As the game progresses, more cut scenes appear to give you an update on what's going on deep down in the enemy's stronghold. The enemies get harder as you continue, increasing the challenge.

OK maybe it's a little repetitive – fighting one guy after the next, but at that point they couldn't have done any better. Speaking of fighting, you move with the arrow keys, but to perform kicks and punches you need to use the following: Q, A, Z for high, mid and low punch; W, S, X for high, mid and low kick. I think space is for side step, but I wasn't able to use it in combat.

So what are you waiting for, go on and save your lovely lady out of the claws of the evil lord, before he has his ways with her.

You need to press space as soon as you see the "Brøderbund Software, Inc." credits. If you don't you'll see a message asking you to place the disk in your drive and the game will hang.
