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.

OK, so it’s not a great game, it’s not even a pretty good game and it’s fun for only a little while. Still it’s one of the few games made for DOS which is based upon the Flintstones, the modern Stone Age family.

Hi-Tech Expressions usually made fairly simple side-scrollers. Still, this game is a let down. By the year 1991 graphics and sounds were already way ahead of what this game has to offer, so it’s easy to say this game was obsolete when it came out in 1991. There are 16 colors and there are some very simple sounds to it. It does support joystick, although the keyboard is more user friendly. The picture seems to be choppy and I don’t have the feeling it’s due to the emulation, it seems to be this bad for real. All in all this would be hardly anything more then a mediocre game if it would see daylight even half a decade earlier.

Now apart from the technical downsides the game hasn’t much of an upside either. It’s mildly amusing before it gets frustrating. You need to jump and duck over and under obstacles while avoiding or stoning (with real stones – they don’t call it the stone age for nothing) the animals which are trying to prevent you from finding Dino.

You can play either Fred or Barney, but that has no effect on the gameplay itself, or you can even select a two player option (hot seat) where each player plays on of the characters. Even that doesn’t really improve the game. Now the creators of the game were trying to capture the spirit of the cartoon Bedrock, so they added some prehistoric animals (like the ambulancesaurus of the fireplugosauphant) but they didn’t succeed at that either.

So unless you’re a big fan of the Flintstones and wish to add this one to your collection, or if you can view this game as a challenge you need to complete (so you can say there’s no game you could beat) there’s not really much point in downloading this one. The only reason I gave it a 2 not a 1 is that it’s not complete crap and that I’ve seen worse games out there (although there weren’t all that many).
