Hi oldbroad, ordinarily they DO sell these games as downloads. I bought "Bicycle Bridge" as a download. however, I just bought the download of "Amber-Journeys Beyond", downloaded the setup file, but it would NOT install, so I contacted the seller and he is shipping the DISC version to me, and I should receive it around Wednesday in my "snail mail". I will let you know how THAT works out.

I was confused too until I got an email moments ago in which he states the game is being dispatched by USPS.

To my knowledge, Amber has never been legally sold as a download.

The allvideo guy sends an original game disc along with his custom install DVD.

The "all video guy's" name is CHRIS, and he assured me that the DVD disc WILL work for me. He has been doing everything to try and help keeping this customer HAPPY, so when I get the disc, I will let you know if it DOES "work" for me. Thanks for everybody's input.

Hi everyone. I wanted to post and say a big thank-you for posting this website address. I have SO many old games that I'd love to replay, plus many that I never played back in the day and would love to play now, but I have a newish laptop with Windows 10, and so I thought I'd have to buy an old computer and run Win 95 or 98 to be able to play them. This is awesome and I can't wait to see what games this guy has for sale!

Tracy : )

Hello again,
I did receive the disc of "AMBER", installed it but it did not run. I contacted Chris at Allvideo, and he sent me some files to patch and upgrade the game, and now it's running very well, as he had promised. He IS a man of his word, so now he has a steady customer. If you see this thread, Chris, thank you for being here for me.

I got my copy of Amber Journeys Beyond today followed the instructions and it is working like a charm. Chris also included Lighthouse on the disc and it also works as promised. I am one happy camper. Amber brings back some good old memories of when I first became an adventure gamer.

I just ordered a disc from him. I have the original ROTS game but can't get it to play on
Win 10 so he is sending me an install disc so it will play on Win 10. I'll let everyone know if everything works out.
