L’Abbaye des Morts

In the 13th century, the Cathars, who preach about good Christian beliefs, were being expelled by the Catholic Church out of the Languedoc region in France.
One of them, called Jean Raymond, found an old church in which to hide, not knowing that beneath its ruins lay buried an ancient evil.

A style close to Spectrum ZX, with its dark background and bright colors, proper fit with the story, because it does look old and somewhat horrifying. Also, the gameplay is direclty inspired by Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy.

A comment about recent released freegames (ad-supported)

Recently have been released as free ad-supported this (old) games, i added them in the archive..

The Suffering

Full Spectrum Warrior

Rise and Fall

Area 51

I read some of the comments around the web, and some comments around this website too, and i saw some gamers had some problems with this softwares, one in particular said he had a problem with ‘Softwrap’… After some googling investigation, i found out this (should) be an anti-piracy (copy protection) system, which if you ask me is quite absurd to put such a thing in a free game don’t you think? Can’t they put a simple banner without forcing us to install adware, drm, copy protection or other crap in our computers? I am not a programmer so i really can’t say how things works.

But i can give some suggestions and here we go:

1-NEVER install free or commercial games on your work pc, they contains (most of them) hidden stuff and invasive copy protections.

2-Playing safe is easy, just do another partition in your hard-drive, install your (windows xp, linux, react os) and you have 2 working OS, the one where you can play craps or surf not-thrusted site and the other for normal use. If something screw up your OS, u can easily format and re-install.

3-Boot and load your os from a USB pen, you can do it with linux and others OS, not sure if this is available with windows xp too (but it should be).

4-You could also use Virtual Machine, just to check if the installation contains malware, before installing in the real computer. (sometimes when i have suspects i do this way)

If you have guides or suggestions.. comments are below.
