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.

Every now and again I come across a game I never even knew existed and I really love. This is one of such cases. The Pilgrim’s Quest is a very good game that seems to be a cross of many popular games.

It’s a sort of a blend of Discovering America, Seven Cities of Gold and Colonization. Each of the games is very good on its own, so how does such a crossbreed work? In this case surprisingly well.

You board the Mayflower and set sail for the new world. You need to make sure you land at the right place and it can be tricky to navigate (you’ll probably need a few tries to successfully cross the ocean) and not to forget you need to bail water out. Luckily the game always shows you which commands you can use at a certain point of the game (when you need to bail a small warning will pop up with up and down arrows beside it, to know what you need to do).

Once on the other side you need to explore the area. There are several locations at which you can set up your first colony. Carefully study the characteristics of each location before deciding.

Once the colony is set you need to assign people to do various tasks (like hunting, helping the sick, cutting trees, making housing…), or you can go exploring around.

When you’re exploring you can enter native tribes and trade with them (they will gladly except things like beer and other goods they can’t make themselves, but be careful about guns – they might use them against you).

You can also find different locations where a mini game awaits you (riding the log, fishing, hunting) and all of those (if successful) contribute to your supplies.

And finally you can visit the captain of the Mayflower, who’s waiting to return to Europe. You can order supplies to bring on the return to the new world, or have him take some of your goods to Europe.

All in all the game is an interesting mixture of different genres that offers quite some diversity. The graphics are nothing spectacular and the sound simply isn’t there, but the controls are user friendly and the game although versatile, doesn’t make you loose the overview. A solid product that will offer you valid edutainment.
