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.

Important warning!

1) BC's Quest for Tires is a PC BOOTER game! This means that the archive doesn't include any executable files (such as *.exe or *.com). Therefore you need to mount the image within the DOSBox, otherwise you won't be able to run the game. At the bottom is a step by step guide to what you need to do!

2) The game requires a joystick. You won't be able to play without it. 

And now about the game itself...

It's one of the first computer games I've ever played and still among my favorite time wasters. There's no deep and intriguing plot to it, just pure addictive fun. 

You're a monocycle riding caveman who's trying to save the love of his life from the clutches of an evil prehistoric monster. In order to do so you need to avoid different obstacles (rocks, holes, tree branches, club swinging ladies, rolling stones – not the group, falling stones, stalactites and stalagmites...). 

You can move left or right on the screen, jump and duck. You can also increase or decrease your speed (by pressing the joystick buttons). Do not confuse your speed with your position on the screen. The speed is indicated by a meter at the bottom of the screen. 

Each level will represent a different challenge and if you die, you'll start from the beginning of the level (not from the beginning of the game). Once you run out of all the lives, you will have to start all over though. 

The game has 4 different levels of difficulty and it has a two player option (basically it's just a hot seat option, you loose a life and player two gets a go at it). The graphics are extremely good for the time period. It was the time of 4-color-eye-burning CGA, yet this game offered a bigger color palette. The sounds consist just of few bleeping sound effects, still at the time they were far from obsolete. 

All in all this game is a solid product that was way ahead of most of its competition at the time and is still very enjoyable to play today. I strongly recommend it. 

1) Download BC's Quest for Tires and extract the archive (unzip). The easiest way would be to put the BC.IMG file on your C: drive.

2) Download DOSBox and install it.

3) Open the DOSBox.conf file and change the following lines:

3a) machine=vga into machine=cga

3b) cycles=3000 into cycles=500

3c) At the end of the file add the following lines:

mount c c:(or specify the path to the directory where you have the BC.IMG archive, if it’s not simply on C:)

c:

boot C:\BC.IMG

4) Start DOSBox and the game will open up! Select C (composite TV) for better graphics.
