Hey everyone, I've had a project for a few years now making new installers for old PC games; Tomb Raider - Classic Collection (I, II, III - The Adventures Of Lara Croft, IV - The Last Revelation, V - Chronicles, VI - Angel Of Darkness)is one of the games I've restored
Come check out Legacy Gamer's Union on Discord for this game and plenty of others that actually work on Windows 10/11

Though I agree its insane the DOS-version of this isn't officially deemed abandonware but if it's still available for about a buck everywhere I guess there's no complaining.

What I WILL complain about is people not getting how rules and laws do have to be followed if this site wants to keep going, and the way its done right now is perfect.

Thanks for all the abandoned titles I've managed to find back here so far

I adore this game so much. It's a true icon in the history of games. Not many games had a female main character and Lara is the absolute best. Even now in 2021 it's still a great game. You should deff get it. It's on sale often on steam for only $1.

This is it: The Tomb Raider game that started it all.

Ground-breaking game for it's time. The story was interesting, the levels were compelling, the puzzles kept you intrigued. The John Woo style dual-pistol acrobatic combat also felt really good (riding on the John Woo movie trend of the time). There was just the right mix of action, adventure and puzzles. When you solved a puzzle you felt smart. When you killed enemies you felt cool doing it. When you adventured around and discovered new stuff you felt like Indiana Jones. The fact that it had a female lead character wasn't that big of a deal to most players. But, it did prompt more and more fans to focus on her bust size then on the game play, and later editions of the game started to do that as well (eventually turning her ever-increasing bust size into a running joke). You'll have to fight the chase cam sometimes on this one, but overall it's good. It was always fun to find secret "zoom out" areas where you'd do something and the camera would pan out to make it action / scenic (eg: like high-diving off a cliff into water). Played the carp out of it when it came out. Really great game.
