When Tomb Raider was released in 1996 for the PC (on MS-DOS), it was ground-breaking, and began the series that made Lara Croft a super-star. Developed by Core Design and published by Eidos Interactive, the game opened up a whole new world for 3D third-person action-adventure genre. The sexy adventurer is back, in an updated version of her very first adventure. Tomb Raider Gold is a special edition of the original award-winning Tomb Raider game that started the Lara Croft phenomenon. The game includes four bonus levels, a new Tomb Raider calendar, screensaver and Windows 95 desktop theme.

This classic 3D third-person adventure takes our heroine around the world, in search of the fabled and powerful relic called The Scion. This ancient Atlantean artifact is scattered throughout the caverns and temples of the world in pieces. This journey will take Lara across the globe, to places like China, Tibet, Venice and even a sunken ocean liner!

Once you make it through all fifteen levels from the standard game, looking for the artifact, solving riddles, avoiding disaster (and death) and gathering clues, you can move on to new challenges in four new levels created justb for the golf version. You will take Lara through icy caverns, ancient ruins, a lost tropical paradise and many other exotic locations. Along the way you must ward off bats, bears, wolves, alligators, raptors and even a monstrous T-Rex.

The four new levels are split into two sections, Unfinished Business and The Shadow of the Cat. Unfinished Business consists of two challenging levels that return Lara to fabled Atlantis. You, as Lara, have discovered the existence of a hidden area of ruins in the alien city. These ruins allegedly contain a hive of surviving creatures guarding an alien hatchery. You must destroy the alien horde before they invade the world again!

In Shadow of the Cat, you return to the city of Khamoon to uncover the secret of the strangely beautiful cat statue. This journey will trigger an all-new adventure full of mystery and exploration. Lara will need her wits, agility and a full arsenal of pistols, magnums, shotguns and Uzis to battle the creatures intent on ending her career.

There is no time to lose! Grab your gear and your guns, and get ready for adventure.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
