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 :)

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.

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 play.do 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 !

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?

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!

Okay, seriously. added this comment :

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