Abandonware DOS title

Donations: why Abandonware DOS needs support

Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games for DOS and Windows. However, there are costs to sustain. If you're wondering how to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.

I use the money to:

  • pay domain and server costs
  • keep working on the site, tracking bugs, adding features
  • buy recent retro games to review (recent games WILL NEVER be available to download)
  • get help from translators (being italian, sometimes I need professional help...)

To donate any amount (you choose) just click on the donate button and you'll be redirected to PayPal.

Features I'm working on


  • adding manuals, walkthroughs, maps
  • adding rare and popular DOS and Windows games to download
  • adding screenshots and videos
  • fixing bugs and making every page better
