How to play Adiboo Magical Playland Windows
Retroger Alex contributed the German version and left this comment :
The easiest way I was able to get it working is by extracting the .bin or .cue files into a folder then using the ScummVM emulator that you can download for free. Go to "add game" on ScummVM and choose the folder where you extracted the game files. 3 options should pop up, French, German and Italian, all 3 have German audio, but French and Italian have their respective language in what's written.

To get this to work you have a number of options. Some here have suggested using a virtual machine to run win 98 and to then use the VM to boot the game. I went a different route and installed a PC emulator (PCem v17) which essentially emulates the physcial components of a retro PC like cpu/gpu and installed Win 98 SE to that emulated PC. There are many guides about this on youtube but you need at least somewhat descent specs on your rig to run it.

How can I download this?! I have Windows 11 on my Microsoft Surface Pro. I have downloaded it from so many sites, including this one, and I cannot get it to work. I downloaded virtual box and cannot figure out how to get it to work. I cannot find any tutorials online. Ugh, I am so frustrated.
