Abandonware DOS title

How to help and why Abandonware DOS needs support

Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games for DOS and Windows. I keep working on Abandonware DOS on a weekly basis in my spare time, adding games, developing new features when I can, etc. However, there are costs to sustain. If you wish to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.

I spend money mainly to pay for hosting costs: Abandonware DOS is hosted by two distinct services: one for the site and the other for the bulk of games and applications. The rest goes for various services directly linked to the site.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated so far (a lot of people)!

What I'm currently working on

The time I've got is not much, that's why I try to focus on important activities such as adding more content and making Abandonware DOS more user-friendly. This is just an example of how what I usually do.


  • adding documents like manuals, walkthroughs, maps
  • adding review excerpts from old video games magazines
  • adding more games for DOS, Windows, Mac
  • updating info of games already added
  • tweaking the code here and there

Some of them are planned, other are just ideas that may or may not come to life.

  • adding bigger files to download: ISO images, more recent games for Windows, etc.
  • add popular soundtracks to play directly in your browser or download in MP3 form
  • implement an advanced search system


  • upgraded hosting
  • created a "demo" section and uploaded lots of demos
  • redesigned and reworked the "search by keyword" page
  • rethought the code handling series
