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.
Michael Jordan in Flight is a typicall basketball game, but with a twist. The perspective and control are unique in this game. Its done in 3 dimensions – and there were little, or no sports games at all, that offered 3D graphics back in 1992, let alone digitized! I think this is the first game in which I encountered actual filmed cut scenes – and by Michael Jordan himself! However, due to the 3D engine that required heavy processing from the 66Mhz CPUs (which were state of the art back then), the actual players are very badly drawn, and there are absolutely no surroundings. This means no crowd, no hall, no nothing – the playing court floats in big black nothing. Still, if you try to ignore those facts (and it will take some time until you get used to it), the game is not that bad. You can play matches with max 6 players in total (3v3), but this is OK since the game would look too crowded from that perspective if there were any more players.
The game is not very realistic and player control can get a bit frustrating. It definitely will take some time to get used to. However, once you master the basics, its quite fun to play. You can choose your opposing player and your team players (1 active and 1 on the bench) when playing a single game, or if you play a tournament, random opponents will play against you. Fatigue is also something to watch out for so you will have to learn how to call time-outs and change players (you don't neccessarily have to play with M.J.).
In conclusion, this game can get addictive if you're patient and give it some time to get used to, otherwise I would avoid this one. I'm guessing you won't be sorry if you download it and try it out!
