CONQUESTS OF THE LONGBOW:
The Legend of Robin Hood

computer adventure game

Designed, directed and written by Christy Marx.

cover of Robin Hood game

King Richard is held hostage in Vienna and Prince John is perfectly happy to leave it that way. But you, as Robin Hood, through your unmatched skill with the bow, cleverness with disguise, and with the help of your outlaw band and Maid Marian, can raise the ransom needed to bring your King home.

For those who have the newest versions of Windows and would still like to play a DOS-based game, or if you're having technical problems making your old version of the game run, check out this freeware: DOSBOX that is designed to let you do exactly that. With thanks to Samuel Stokes for the useful tip.

Sorry, I don't have copies of the game to sell and don't know where to find any (try eBay or game forums). Or you may, at your own risk and with no guarantees, try this.
