Every old PC game listed on Abandonware DOS is defined by one or more keywords or themes describing an aspect or a feature of the game. A few examples: "cyberpunk", "fantasy", "turn-based" or "dungeon crawler". Keywords change from time to time. Sometimes I delete or rename a keyword or, more often, I add new ones. To find the games you're looking for just click on a keyword.

The number inside the blue circle shows the number of games related to that keyword.
