Flight of the Amazon Queen is a graphical point-and-click adventure game by Interactive Binary Illusions, originally released in 1995 for MS-DOS and the Commodore Amiga. The Amiga version had no voices, while the DOS CD version is a "talkie" featuring full voice acting. The game was released as freeware in 2004 for use with ScummVM.
Taking place in the 1940s, the game is a pastiche of adventure serials of the time. The player assumes the role of Joe King, pilot for hire and owner of the titular Amazon Queen airplane, who crashlands in the Amazon jungle and subsequently has to save not only his passenger, the famous movie star Faye Russel, but also an entire tribe of Amazon women and even the world from a mad scientist and his lederhosen company, who have concocted a vile scheme to turn Amazons into Dinosaur warriors.
