I think the format (it's actually a Lisp dialect) must originally have been documented either in Commodore's AmigaMail or in the proceedings of one of the later DevCons. You'll find the docs on the Amiga developer CDs.

Installers are generally used for apps which need files copied to various locations.

Why would a game have any need for one? Surely it'd just be copying a directory from one place to another, a task that could be easily achieved with one command.
