Legends PC DOS version

I'm looking for this game done by Krysalis, floppy version or CD version
is strange but this game seem to be lost in the web because in almost all DOS-gamer sites this game do not exists or there is a cdrip incomplete without the music

so if you know a link where I can download this one > thanks

probably because its an active sale on Steam?

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1134130/Legends/

titles like that tend to vanish when gog/steam have them as active sales.

GOG does try to get the rights to games directly, but in the case of Steam it's 'publishers' acquiring the rights and then making sure they milk the hell out of people who remember the games. The collateral damage is 'Abandonware' (there's no such thing) sites getting cease and desist letters in the process.

I don't think so,
there are lot of DOS titles on sale on steam which are available easily in DOS abandonware sites

I think this game is lost because is a rare DOS title which few people know about its existence


btw, the music in the link you posted of the 1st level is different of the Amiga Cd32 or the Amiga floppy version
so it seems this DOS game have unique music tracks

I got the PC version as part of of the ExoDos collection, though I just tried the CD32 version as well and it's practically identical.

btw it wasnt specific in the topic but is it the DOS version your specifically looking for? or any version(s)?

https://www.whdownload.com/games/L/L...2_AGA_1346.lha
https://www.whdownload.com/games/L/L..._v1.2_CD32.lha

^ Amiga versions from the WHDownload site are ofc available, but yeah its a bit of a hunt for the PC version(s).

Maybe, but they don't have powers in other countries.
All they can do is to get specific page blocked in their country, and that's a lengthy legal process.

Try this with Russian sites. That's one of the reasons I stopped using google as search engine for many old titles, because its search is heavily censored. No problem at all with Yandex.

thanks m8 , I just downloaded it

btw, the audiotracks are the same of the CD32 version, so it seems the new Legend version which today is selling Steam contain
different music
