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.

Disciples of Steel is an RPG as you know them - character creation, gaining levels,buying/finding new equipment, solving different tasks for the people in the world, etc.

After watching the intro-movie you have no idea what the game is about - it has something to do with knights, but that is as far as it goes with the storytelling. This doesn't matter at all, because the intro is very well done for a '93 game, so you'll sit back with a feeling that this is going to be good.

When you start a new game you move on to the character creation screen where you (yes you guessed right) create up to 8 characters with the standard RPG-options: die roll on stats, race, class, picture, etc. When this is done and you have chosen a formation for your characters, select "break camp" - and you're on your way.

The game is divided into two parts:

The first is the adventure map where you move around, enter cities, dungeons, etc. When you're in cities you can buy armor, weapons and other various items and you can also buy water and food (which is important for the survival of your party members).

The second screen is the combat screen. They're almost identical, but the difference is (and you guessed right again): combat. This is done as in many other RPG games - turnbased, though you never end your turn - each character will in turn be given the option to attack, aim, fire, cast a spell, etc. The combat is not easy, so I'll recommend that you use the save-function often!

The graphics are at best average for '93 (maybe they used all their time on the short intro-movie and forgot about the in-game graphics) - this isn't a big problem as graphichs aren't the most important aspect of a RPG-game, but a little more effort is desired. The music resembles the above - the number of tunes is very limited, and you'll tire of them very quickly (except perhaps the "combat one" :))

Conclusion:

The game resembles many other RPG-games on the site, and doesn't contribute with many new aspects to the RPG-genre. Compared to other games this one doesn't make the standards for graphics, and the music stays on the average level. The feel-good feeling after the intro departed rather fast - a shame, this could've been great. A very average (perhaps a little below) game in all aspects - but probably enjoyable for the RPG-fan who just can't get enough.



Important: Run the game by typing in crack, pressing enter and then typing in start
