I found this website last night, and I'm wondering if it's legit. https://www.allvideoclassicgames.com/

It claims that the old games it sells will run on newer computers with a compatibility disc. I tried looking up reviews to see if it's legit or not, but I had no luck.

I recognize this eBay seller. We have several members here who have purchased games from him, and the games have all run without problems.

Here is one of his ebay listings. You can check out his feedback on that page.

I've never ordered from the website (didn't even know it existed) but I have ordered from him through eBay and have had no problems.

Thanks Marian and oldbroad. I'll add his website to my favorites, and order a few of the children's games for my niece, once she's old enough to play games. My sister is having her first child in June. 80% chance it's a girl.

I can add a recommendation grin

I've bought several "tweaked" games from him over the past few years and they have all worked perfectly thumbsup

WOW, I just went to that site, and was able to purchase the game: BICYCLE BRIDGE, guaranteed to run on my WIN 10 PC. Once I receive it, then install it, I will let you know if it DOES work for me. HAPPY GAMING!

That's great, Sandy. It shouldn't take long for the package to arrive either, as the seller is in New York. smile

It DID arrive (the download file).I installed it and it's running on my WIN 10 PC PERFECTLY. I still have the original "Floppy" disc version on my shelf, but that doesn't work on the newer Windows computers.
I now have a new source from which to buy games, and completely LEGIT. HAPPY GAMING, fellow Boomers.

Just bought AMber Journeys Beyond from the site. Been waiting to replay this for YEARS! I hope it's as simple as he says it is.

I recently bought that too - but haven't tried it yet.

[I found the original release pretty difficult to cope with - for one reason or another yes]

Okay I gave it a shot. I just purchased Lost in Time. If you read my review and walk through here you know I really liked that game. Oh yes the original disk is still around and the game is presently installed on my PC through Dosbox and the front end program D-Fend Reloaded. Actually all I have to do is put the disk in the drive open D-fend and click on the icon in that program and it fires right up. So why buy this? If it works it never hurts to have a backup. Thanks for the link smile
