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 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.

Captain Dynamo
210 kb



Captain Dynamo was the biggest hero in his days. Now, he is retired and dreams about the time when he was the nightmare of every villain. So when the insanely evil genius Austen van Flyswatter steals a huge load of gems, retired Captain Dynamo sees an opportuniy to once again save the day! Digging up his old costume, he heads towards Van Flyswatter's castle to retrive the stolen goods. What seemed to be a fairly straightforward task, turns really ugly when it becomes apparent that the evil madman has placed deadly traps all over his home.

This game, produced by Codemasters in 1993, is a classic platformer game, where you start off at the bottom of a pit, and have to jump all the way to the top. Once you reach the upper section, you'll be transported to the next level. In all there are 12 levels in this game - all equipped with monsters and traps to make life miserable for any retired superhero. While the game starts of somewhat easy, it suddenly changes gear, and you find yourself carefully evaluating every single step you take. One false move, and you're toast. Captain Dynamo's only superpower is a high-jump, that he can use to reach higher ground. He has no other powers at all, so you can't kill an enemy from a distance. The only way to kill anything is to jump on top of it.

The controls for the game are really simple; you move with the cursor keys, and jump with the Space Bar. To do a super jump, simply press up and Space at the same time. There will also be springs located throughout the levels to help you reach higher grounds.

Captain Dynamo is a really nice little game, with really neat and colorful animation and design, coupled with really cathy music. All working together to bring an enjoyable gaming experience to any gamer. The only downside to the game is that some parts of the levels can be just insanely difficult (like the rotating knifes in level 2), but once you've figured out the trick, you shouldn't have as much trouble the next time you try it.

Happy gaming!

The game IS playable under Win XP, but not recommended. Doing so will cause the music to disappear, and the screen can flicker from time to time. As for VDMSound, the music can be made out if you listen carefully, but the screen will still flicker. I would recommend using DOSBox.
