4th Dimension - Haunted House (floppy version)

It's a game I played as a kid, and I beleive came bundled with my A4000 in 1993. It's not the best game in the world but I've just got myself another A4000 and badly want to play again for nostalgic reasons.

If anyone could help at all that would be great. I've searched ebay, APDL only has CDROM, and none of the 'abandonware' style sites seem to have it.

(Location is New Zealand if relevant)

As it's not 'abandoned' that's hardly surprising.

We also sell the collection as a download but you'd still have the problem of getting such a large zip file onto an A4000 since it's too big to fit on a floppy.

There's been a huge revival recently in the use of the old Archimedes computers and various people have asked about the 4D games so we're hoping to make many of them available singly soon. Most will still require a hard disc when installed, but the main problem seems to be actually getting the files onto the computer, as you've discovered.
