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.

If you like rally games and if you like old games, you will find this game very enjoyable. The game Lombard RAC Rally is a classic made in 1988 by a small company called Red Rat. This company made only a few games. The most known amongst them was Pushover, published by Mandarin Software, a company mostly dedicated to publishing Spectrum games. Because of that this game was launched to all platforms available in that time.

Like the name itself said: this is a game about rally, where you can drive a car competing in the most famous rallies. Lombard RAC Rally is a simulation of a tournament running in England. Let us talk about the graphics now. You can play in CGA or EGA mode. As you can see in the screenshots, you will get better results in EGA mode, because there are more colors. When playing the game, you should race at day or at night, or even in fog, snow and many different weather conditions, which will make you to like this game. But if you will play in CGA mode, you wouldn’t like the graphics because you will have only four colors. It is better to run the file that gives you the EGA graphics.

In the main menu you have many options to choose from, like running all rallies or playing only some stages. The sound isn’t very good, so I think it is better to turn it off.

The cursor controls are very easy to use:

Accelerate: Up
Brake: Down
Left: Left
Right: Right
Gear: Return

To become a master in this game, I advise you to play practice first, to learn the stages, and to know the car controls. All of this will make you a better driver during the rally. In the workshop you can fix your car and repair damage received during the race. In the car you are sitting on the right side, which is usual in England and you will see the road like you can see it from your real car and it will give you a good feeling how to run in a rally.

Lombard RAC Rally is a good game, with a very easy way to control the car, and with the EGA graphics you will find it a good game you could play for a few hours. I give it a 4.



This game need to be run in DOSBox.
