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.
This is a remake of one of the first games made by Brøderbund, dating all the way back to 1985. The idea itself is very original and it puts you in the position of an Interpol detective, whose task is to hunt down criminals. During your investigation, you get to fly around the world, travel to different cities and investigate in many places. You get different kinds of clues, based on which you can either issue a warrant or track down the criminal you're after. The game progresses in such a way that you never get the same case twice! The potential is limitless.
As for the graphics, there are plenty of very nice pictures representing different towns, and the introduction is quite satisfactory. The only thing that could have been done better are the sounds, which are repetitive and pretty annoying. Of course, we have to take into consideration the fact that making PC-speaker sounds manually is both time-consuming and difficult.
Finally, the navigation through the game is simple and straightforward, so there shouldn't be any problems with that. All in all, this classic is a must.
Part of the Carmen Sandiego Series
