Hi there

I found a download of Lemmings (the game) on the website click here for £4.99. Is this a trustworthy site to download from? They say the game will work on XP and Vista, but I am not so sure about that. Lemmings only ever worked on DOS.

Any thoughts on this?

Only a PO Box address?
No Phone Number i could find.
Very strange for a 'real' gaming company!

I thought Lemmings was Abandonware these days, check here > click here < or put Abandonware into google, loads of old games are noe free to download.

Why not just do it properly and use an amiga emulator, I have had hours of fun doing this, a little searching on the net and you soon find the entire Amiga 500 back catalogue.... not to sure on the legality thou :).

The 5 star review of Sim City is a masterpiece; click here

They're charging for an installer; click here

So get DOSBox yourself and the game in question at one of the sites mentioned above, spend a couple of minutes reading the very simple instructions for DOSBox and save yourself some money. click here

This is also a advertising link farmer, and just browsing their store items can make pop-up ads appear offering to "Scan your computer", etc.

What annoys me is that I arrived there via Amazon. Stay away. :-(
