Abandonware DOS title

The best abandonware action games

Retro gamers like myself think that the best PC games were published a long time ago, in the 80s and in the 90s. Some of you may remember these titles, but some of you are going to learn just now about the best abandonware games of all time.

Actually, some of these games are not abanoned at all and you can buy them on GOG or Steam, but I decided to include them anyway.

The games are ordered according to the votes cast by the users of Abandonware DOS.


Action

Action video games are all about speed, fast moves and dexterity. The main action varies according to the kind of game, which can include jumping from platforms (platform games), beating other players or computer controlled adversaries (beat'em up, fighting games) or simply exploring a maze.
