Default Hocus Pocus [SOLD]

I loved this platform game as Shareware. Anyone got a full version of it?

No, you can ABSOLUTELY NOT "work something" out!

The game is NOT abandonware, and by working something out... you will eventually get this site shut down.

If he wants the full version of the game, he will have to buy it.

Here is a little rule of thumb.

If the game was made by either Sierra, LucasArts / LucasFilm / LucasGames or Apogee... think of the games as still sold, until otherwise proven.

Hocus Pocus is an Apogee game.

The easiest way would be to check Underdogs:
http://www.the-underdogs.org/

That is what we do as a first stop. If`Underdogs have the game for download, then it is ok.

If Underdogs do not show any information at all, it would be great to go to MobyGames to get some information on the game:
http://mobygames.com/

And if you see that the game is only a couple of years old, or produced by any of the above listed companies, the chance is high that the game is still sold.


If all the above turns out blank, you can start looking for a buy/purchase link on the net.

You can trust HOTU with Abandonia's life.


Whatever you find on that site, is welcomed at our site (as long as it is good).

HOTU have been in trouble in the past so they make SURE that a game has been abandoned before they place it on the site.
