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.

Five years earlier Axis of Allied Nations gained control over Earth. They immediately placed up terraformers to make life more hospitable for themselves. The downside? It is killing the human race. You were once a rebel, but you got caught and has been used as an engineer to build a new weapon for the aliens. The MASTER (Multi-Attack Super Turbo Energy Ranger). One day when oppurtunity strikes, you steal the MASTER and escape. Now it is time to do some serious payback.

Highway Hunter was produced by Safari Software in 1995, the company that later created Tyrian, and Highway Hunter is just as enjoyable and addictive as Tyrian is. The gameplay is quite simillar to other space shooters, you kill everything you can see and pick up powerups along the way, then you kill a big boss at the end of each level. The thing that sets it apart, however, is that you are operating a car and thus are confined to driving on the road. Which means that you don't have as much room to avoid enemies as you have in other games.

I think that the whole game is really well done. It has excellent music, really nice design and sprites, and plays very smoothly. The 15 levels are all designed with a good balance. Not too hard, and not too easy. However, the game is lacking that certain something to reach the full 5-point mark. It just fades into the row of other space shooters, with little (apart from driving instead of flying) to set them apart. Also, I think there should be more powerups, like guns that spread out your gunfire over a bigger area.

But all in all, this game is excellent!
