@Gray that's right

Gray 2024-03-17 0 point

Admin, to clarify: you're saying the ATRAPS named file contained with the ISO cannot be the Trojan as the disk image pulled was made before the Trojan was?

admin 2024-03-12 0 point

@Tasch stop with this non-sense, this Trojan appeared in 2014, dig into the relations of the VT report.

Tasch 2024-03-08 0 point Windows version

DO NOT DOWNLOAD. File is infected with a particularly nasty trojan rootkit (called ATRAPS.Gen). Please take this down until there is a verifiably safe and uninfected version of the software.

(Analysis on VirusTotal:
Normally I'd assume only one flag meant a false positive, but I can't chance it with a rootkit this severe.

Can anyone give me like a really dumbed down step by step of how to install this including any other programs I would need to run it? Pretend like I'm stupid because I am.

PURSUER OF NOSTALGIA 2023-05-21 1 point Windows version

Thanks for the tips guys! The game reopens to where last left off every time!

However, does anyone know any ways to get the game to run with intro and cutscenes on a modern Windows 10 OS WITHOUT having to download QuickTime or DirectX? I genuinely worry that security may be compromised as a result, unless there's a more viable alternative (i.e. VLC, RealPlayer, etc.)

Downloaded this and was immediately deleted by my anti-virus as it contained a virus labeled "TR/ATRAPS.Gen" and upon inquiring more information via Google by typing exactly that in. Tutorials popped up giving a how to remove the TR/ATRAPS.Gen virus thus confirming it is indeed malware.

I would love to play this game again after 10-15 years. Please remove the virus from the folder/game/download.

It looks like you can click Save As and then save your game to any location you choose except "D:\Data" where it defaults you to save to. If that makes sense. I was able to save my game and click Load Game from the main menu. It allowed me to select my save file which was in the same folder I left it in. It just won't let you save files to the optical disk drive is all.

anarchyangel 2022-12-16 0 point

To save I clicked save as, and wrote the save name in place of the *
Make sure and keep the .am3 and it should save when reopening the game.

Pursuer of Nostalgia 2022-11-30 2 points Windows version here's my drift:
I got the game run just fine, by mounting the ISO, going to "DATA" folder, and clicking the .exe file "AMAZON3". Yeah, yeah, the intro and guide cutscenes don't show up, but I'm not picky as long as I don't get a virus/compromised security from installing QuickTime 3.0 or DirectX 5.

When trying to save a game file as *.am3, an error message pops up saying "You can't save to D:\Data, please choose another location." Any other option lists it as "Bad File", so there's no progress saved. Has anyone else had this issue? If not, how did you work around it? Please help!

Tried playing this when I was about 11 or so and could never get very far because it NEVER TOLD ME HOW TO DO ANYTHING so I ended up dying of scurvy. Didn't know how to eat anything, get out of the boat, go foraging, go fishing, anything. Anyway, gonna give it a shot 20 years later to see if I can figure it out.

Bowncy Raynclowd 2022-02-09 1 point Windows version

I played this with my only older sibling so often! I searched for it for a long time, 'cause I could never remember much of the game other than fishing up stuff, identifying it, a water salesman I think, and a few other things. I'm so stoked to see this game again.

Matt 2022-02-08 4 points

I loved this game as a kid, even though I never beat it. Part of why I liked it so much is that I had a crush on Rosa, one of the guides, so I'd always pick her and spend a lot of time talking with her.

Herbo 2021-12-06 0 point Mac version

Great game

Raptor 2021-12-05 2 points Windows version

When I was really young, I always come home from school after a bad day of it and play this game. It was hard for me yes but I still loved it as i felt truly I was in the amazon! I adore this game sooo much

PaulaJo 2021-03-22 1 point

I need this for my iPad! I played endlessly when i had windows!

Matt 2020-12-21 0 point

Why does it say windows when the only download available is mac...?
Change this or release windows version.

anonymousse 2020-07-26 -3 points

Check out the guide posted on Oregon Trail 3rd edition and follow the same steps :)

NaCl 2020-06-20 0 point Windows version

So I got the game to run, but it's running in a very small window and it's hard to really see what I'm doing. I'm feeling so nostalgic about this and I'd really appreciate if anyone had any advice or suggestions on how to troubleshoot or fix this.

hspooks 2020-05-31 0 point Windows version

Ran pretty well on my Windows 8, once I opened the game through the Data file. The game does frequently crash, so save often. The only issues I noticed were that the movie clips did not play (such as the game opening and the transition from paddling to visiting a village), and my guide's face could not render.
You can save your game on the D drive, but NOT in the E drive.

Goodmoring ,Soo I'm hear bored if i have a newer hp computer will i still be able to play and download this Game in 2020 ?

JORDAN 2019-10-26 2 points Windows version

Is not compatible with 64 bit windows. Would love to see a DOSBox compatible version :/

Tauri 2019-05-05 7 points Windows version

I recommend what that other guy was saying. I downloaded it and mounted it and it's in my E: drive on Windows 10. in your E drive you click on the file labelled DATA and in there is an application labelled AMAZON3. Click that to run the program. Make sure you save often though bc it crashed on me halfway through the game and make sure you give ipecac root to that annoying character that takes your stuff and wont trade with you or he wont let u go.

Keeps kicking me off about four stops in. So be forewarned.

The ISO file contains both Win / Mac versions

PLAY AMAZON NOW 2019-01-27 18 points

HEY READ THIS if you can't play the game HERE'S THE SCOOP:


Unzip it.


Mount the ISO, and on the disc go to the data folder, and double click amazon3.exe, NOW YOU'RE PLAYING IT ON WINDOWS!

To make it fullscreen, right click that exe and under compatibility, make it play at 640x480.


Marge_Simpson 2019-01-06 0 point

Downloaded this on my PC because of comments saying this didn't work on Mac, only Windows. Thing is, it only downloaded two image files, no application or .exe files. Is there another link for PC?

mad@u 2018-12-19 0 point

let me play :(

old_computer_pen 2018-11-26 1 point

This is an ISO of the Windows version CD, it was only compressed under Mac OS X system, so Mac's metadata got added, the disc image is Windows.

TheresaThe90sKid 2018-10-30 2 points

This works great...on my Windows 10 laptop! Did not work on my Mac at all. I had the same problem as the other reviewers--wound up with basically an empty folder after download. That actually is compatible with my childhood memories, as I never had a Mac-compatible Amazon Trail game. I'm pretty sure this download is incorrectly labeled. Sorry, Mac-only folks!

@Mara it was available on PC as well. My version came bundled with Oregon Trail 3. I remember crashing that stupid canoe so many times! #GruelingPaceForever

Autumn Archer 2017-06-26 1 point

Well, my problem is similar to another gentleman's. It is showing a CD but when I click on it the file is empty. "Get info" says there is 605 megabytes on it, but I can't run it or access it. What do I do?

SadExplorer 2016-04-23 3 points

Tried downloading Mac version. Once it downloaded the file was empty and didn't work. Tried 3 times and it never worked. Sad wanna be Amazon Explorer

Mara 2016-03-25 2 points

ah fuck, well THIS is the version where there are 2 more guides and the sharks and pirhannas bite you sometimes! but why did i remember playing it on PC?

Gretchen 2015-11-24 0 point

When I try to run the game on OS 9 through SheepShaver, I get a message that says "The document could not be opened, because the application program that created it could not be found."
What do I do about this? 2015-10-18 10 points
