Hey :) Is there any chance I can play this on an iPad? I managed to download it using a zip app but I'm not sure how to actually open the game (if it's possible). Thanks :)

Yes, Dan, my bad.

I have the CD version, and it ran with full functionality in Win 95 & 98. I lost sound & some game functions in XP. Even if you run it successfully without an emulator, the river and fishing modes will run too fast on a modern system. My preferred method is to run Win 3.1 inside DOSbox and play it there. That solves all sound and speed issues. You can also run Win 95 or 98 as a virtual machine inside Windows 7/8/Vista, or even on a Mac, at a reduced speed.
@Fred: This is actually the first edition of Amazon Trail. The second was actually an early-release version of the third.

The version you're thinking of is Amazon Trail: 3rd Edition. The version they have on here is the 2nd Edition.

Wow. Every comment beneath this one is genuinely useless.

D-fend Reloaded makes DOSbox easier to use.

You can run this on a WIN XP/2000 without dos box (I think)

I remember this game having voice-overs. is there a link to a download that has the voice-overs in them?

EvLo 2011-11-18 0 point

guys just follow the below instructions

there's no need to give up so easily. There are plenty of tutorials for DOSbox online that I've found very helpful. It's really not that hard.

if you don't know how to run this game, then it's not the game you would like to you know what does the 320*240 resolution look like? do you know anything about DOS?
if all answers are no, then get back to your console dude !

DOSKING 2011-07-31 0 point

Use DOSBOX to play these games, people. Will not work without...

iphx 2011-07-14 0 point

i'm using window 7 and it said that it's not compatible. what to do? i wanna play this game so bad. i've been looking for this game since the last time i played in 1997.

legendman3 2011-02-20 0 point

Its 64 bit and just use dosbox to play these games :/ I use that and its just fine

For all those having trouble playing these games, scroll to the bottom of this page! Follow one of the links under "How to play abandonwares." You have to install a program called D-Fend Reloaded; there is a step by step guide provided by this website for where you should extract the .zip files so that you can play them. I'm on x64 Windows 7 and The Oregon Trail works excellently! :D

I'm using Windows 7, and all I get is "cannot execute" and then it gives me the file path. What gives?

Anne 2011-01-19 0 point

Nobody's talking. ;A; The jaguar isn't talking to me in his deep, creepy, mildly rapey voice any more.

I feel a little betrayed by my childhood.

Still, thanks for uploading!

I have Windows Vista and it won't install, and it said that it's not compatible with 62 bit?

its freezing for me during the first little cutscene where it says "in your bedroom in peru" and theres a megadeth poster with a toucan superimposed over it... cant even get into the good stuff!

Nick 2010-11-20 0 point

How the heck is this supposed to play? I have it loaded, but get the to the main screen (pic 3) and don't get the icons on the bottom to start the game.

mikek 2010-11-04 0 point

i used to love this game when i was younger so i decided to try to play it agian

Okay, seriously. 2010-04-10 0 point

If you don't know what an "emulator" is, please look it up. Also, you must know basic DOS commands.

Crazyjew92 2009-11-19 0 point

Try running it on Dos-Box

amazon 2009-10-14 0 point

has anyone been able to play it on windows 7, i cant seem to play it because it says i need a different bit. A 32 bit.

Kerry 2009-09-12 0 point

This was my favorite childhood game, the nostalgia.. Fantastic educational game, been looking for it all over. Thanks for uploading!

Shorty 2009-06-01 0 point

What stinks is in the original game you could tel what the fudge you were canoeing on. here you can't tell if it's a whirlpool, a log or an animal...and the people don't have sound clips anymore...lame
