"Must be installed on Windows, do not use DosBOX!"

For Windows 7 and later it has to be run using DosBOX. It runs perfectly that way and It can't be played any other way.

hi would love to re live my child hood and play this on my computer....
why wont it work on windows 8???

Jay 2014-12-20 0 point

This is great for being able to play the basic game, build the vehicles, solve puzzles, and throw bananas at monkeys, but it's not quite the same as the original. There's no voice, there's no puzzle customization (for turning off the puzzle types you don't like), and the music/sound is not quite what I remember it being.

So can you guys play this on Windows 7 without the use of DoSBox? Or does it mean that you need to play it on an older version of Windows?

I can't even tell you how many hours of this game I put in when we got our first mac over a decade ago, the nostalgia is real

Lamecodename 2014-11-24 0 point

Still no sound, after changing the compatibility, on windows XP
How do I do what the readfirst file says?
There are a few command line switches that you can try if you have problems
getting the game to work.
To make sound adjustments:
-si pc speaker
-sb Sound Blaster
-sm Microsoft Sound System
-sn sound off
Graphics adjustments:
-gv VGA

For example, to run with Sound Blaster settings you'd type
ssg -sb (enter)
to start the game.

icecreamdaddy 2014-01-09 0 point

solved it u.u
DOSbox is the answer.
thnx ''knowbody''

icecreamdaddy 2014-01-09 1 point

G&G wont run on 64-bit W8

Knowbody 2013-09-27 0 point

Since this is a 16-bit game, it won't run in a 64-bit OS unless you use DOSbox or something.
It might run in Windows XP, but I haven't tried.

Mister R 2013-09-10 0 point

Awsome! finally!

yoshomie 2013-08-23 0 point

Yes this is an awesome game!
to all those wondering about windows play use: dosbox there are plenty of guides on how to use it.

For Android try dosbox turbo! it rocks even on my crappy phone it runs really well.

Kay 2013-01-06 0 point

I'm running this through D-Fend Reloaded, and I can hear the sounds but I can't see any picture? I'm running 64-bit Windows 7.

gamechamp 2012-12-30 0 point

#4483 I'm not sure which game you are thinking of, but this game is part of the Super Solver's franchise, all of which I believe use the same character.

Bigthan 2012-11-13 0 point

I got it working great using a DOS emulator, DOSBOX. It's free and if you look up the "Setup and Installation of DOSBox" instructions it's pretty simple to setup and use.

bon17 2012-10-13 0 point

sound doesn't work on xp. tried all options.

Computerfail 2012-09-18 0 point

When I try to install, an error message reads that my computer settings are incompatible... what to do? And yeah I did take the files out of the zip folder but ugh I don't understand computers. Thanks in advance if anyone ever reads this.

mediocregopher 2012-09-12 0 point

The game in the tombs is ancient empires

hmm 2012-09-01 0 point

Hiro 2011-10-21 0 point

Tried right clicking the setup.exe and running it under windows xp and even windows 95 compatibility. Nothing.

Nadia 2011-08-07 0 point

When I opened the downloaded file and extracted it with WinRar, it gave me a lot of different things. What do I click on to make it run?

admin 2011-07-04 0 point

This is a windows application, you need to run the setup from windows. Works very well of Windows XP !

Reba 2011-07-02 0 point

I keep getting the "Given folder does not have an executable file" message when I try to load the unzipped folder into my D-Fend reloaded. Is there something I'm missing, here? This is the only game I've had trouble with so far.

Rianna 2011-05-07 0 point

Ah, I was trying to get it to run on windows 7 64 bit, but I have an old xp box and it works fine on that. Thanks for the help!

admin 2011-05-03 0 point

Just ran this on a windows XP computer, installation went fine.
What you should do though is :
Right click on the program (or shortcut, or setup if it doesn't work) and set compatibility mode to windows 95, or the oldest you can get.

Rianna 2011-04-29 0 point

I've just downloaded the files, and although there is a setup file, there doesn't appear to be a program file. When I extracted the files, it gave a message about there being an encryption problem. I haven't had this problem with any other games. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!

Debbie 2011-03-15 0 point

Will this be able to run with DOSBox *with* sound? I already have a program but I'm unable to get any audio with the game :(

admin 2011-03-14 0 point

Hi Dela, this is a windows application and you won't be able to play it on a mac without an additionnal software.
You will have to install it on a windows machine or install on your mac a software like CrossOver.

Dela 2011-03-14 0 point

Has this worked for anyone on a mac?
