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 all is dark and everybody's gone to bed, no-one knows what happens. There are only guesses to be made. In Trolls, that guess is an old childsdream. Toys come to life and start their day in a wonderland that exists out of things to be found in a kid's bedroom and imagination.
In Trolls, you wander around several corridors, choosing a world to play in. Each world counts four levels. For some dark, mysterious reason, little babytrolls are scattered around the levels and it's up to you to collect them. Collect them all and you can ride a winged pig to the next level. As you're one of those mid-nineties trolls with their chubby cheeks and brightly colored hair, your status is shown through your hair color. Purple is normal. Whenever you're hit, your hair turns red. Poison green makes your body heavy as lead.
Armed with the yoyos you can find in balloons all over the place, it is up to you to climb up ridges, kill several absurd or well-drawn, although they're always well-drawn, enemies and collect the troll babies. Once you've done this in four levels, that world is closed and it's time to check for another one. During these levels, you can collect the letters for either the word bonus or bogus. Forming the word bonus takes you to a bonuslevel when you've finished the current one. When you have formed bogus, you're taken to a bogus level. The difference between both, is that in a bogus level, you need to find a certain object within the given time or you'll lose a life. Bonus levels are without any danger whatsoever.
The graphics are brightly colored, all well-done and an inspiration to the imagination. All animations are fluent and worked out into detail. All enemies're designed with a great imagination and sense of level design, together with making sure the look altogether wouldn't get repetitive. Although the backgrounds might work this in hand, the variation of enemies you'll meet along the way will make you look past this.
Trolls is a great game, fun to play and fun to watch. Some might not like the extreme use of bright colors, but it's a good change from all the dark, shady games where you don't see what happens two steps in front of you. If you either have kids, are a kid or a drug addict, this game is the perfect download for you.
