Flight of the Amazon Queen Game Free Download & Install Guide

Author: Glenn Scrima

Flight of the Amazon Queen is an adventure game reminiscent of Indiana Jones with the gaming style of many LucasArts titles of its time. What made this title so memorable is that while it incorporated many of the stylistic strengths of games such as Monkey Island it wasn't ultimately just a poorly made knockoff.

Hi Glenn
Finally you got around to this awsome game. :)

One minor thing though.

You might consider changing the name of the game folder to something with 8 or less letters, so people don't have to figure out how to do the ~ character.

I think your right about the key, I wasn't sure but since its never used normally people might get confused. I'm going to try to get as many guides out as I can this week since I have more free time but I'll try to rewrite that part of the guide at the end of the week, thanks for the tip.

Hi I just check Abandonia and tried downloading the game and it worked. Their server might have been down earlier.
