Ummmm...

I think that the original Home of the Underdogs is long since deceased (unfortunately) and the link you provided points to some junk.

Apparently there are two 'recreations' of HotU...but I'm not sure if I should put in links - easy to Google it though.

But I think Home of the Underdogs is well worth mentioning, expecially since I noticed a few days ago they have NO DOWNLOAD LINKS anymore. So no need to close down threads that mention that site anymore then since it is as far as I can see no longer a site that offers illegal downloads of anything, but still a very nice collection of enthusiastic reviews of old forgotten PC games. There has been no updates in a few years though, but I know of no better place to find reviews of those old games (why is there still no good computer games site similar to boardgamegeek/geekdo?).

I believe you visited the wrong Home of the Underdogs. Since the original Home of the Underdogs' demise, several other sites bearing that name have cropped up and at least one of them does provide links to game downloads.

And we all know abandonware is illegal, don't we?

That is sad to hear.  Many, many years ago I was able to salvage a few old gems that I was afraid would be lost forever from Underdogs.
