Flight of the Amazon Queen image
Game Overview

Flight of the Amazon Queen is an irreverent pastiche of the adventure serials that were popular in the 1940's and is brimming with fun-filled action and a progressively difficult level of play.

Playing Joe King, pilot for hire, you must battle against all odds to stop an evil genius from taking over the World. Throw in a beautiful Amazonian princess, two misguided missionaries, some six foot tall pygmies and a mysterious ancient temple, and you've got yourself one fun filled game that'll probably keep you entertained a little longer than your average adventure.
