RPG oldie: Ultima 7 Part 2 - The Serpent Isle - I remember the moment I started playing Ultima 7 Part 2. I had The Black Gate still in my mind: I loved it, and I wanted something similar. After a few weeks (or months?) I finished Serpent Isle and I was a bit disappointed. Sure, it's a wonderful Ultima game, but it lacked the open world "feeling" I experienced with The Black Gate.

Abandonware spotlight: Hill Street Blues - Hill Street Blues is an old DOS "driving" game developed by Krisalis in 1991. The gameplay it's similar to a Grand Theft Auto clone (we're talking about GTA 1 or 2) in which you are the police and you have to apprehend criminals. Hill Street Blues is a rare example of game based on a TV series. #abandonware

Abanadonware DOS games with detailed information, screenshots and more.
Introduction

I started on an Atari 2600. I spent my childhood playing on a Commodore 64. I grew up with a PC as a pet.
Where does my passion for Abandonware Dos games comes from? My adolescence.

What's left of that age? What do I miss so much? Black DOS screens and good old DOS games. And here I am now, aged, an abandonware player, remembering those afternoon spent playing with old DOS games.
