Run setup first in dosbox to configure it and then the game will run ok. Dragging the icon from the game folder onto the desktop shortcut is the easiest way to open them. Then CTRL+F9 to exit.

when running in dosbox it hangs at the screen telling me about the sound and midi and nothing else, just hangs forever. It even does it in the browser version on this site, please help/

It didn't start in DOSBOX, but found out on another site that you need to speed up the emulation by pressing F12 several times.

Wow, I have played Blizz games for 20+ years and I have never heard about this game. Even had a sega genesis a long time ago, but not the 32X, i guess thats why... better late than neva tho i guess lol

The manual is actually for the DOS version.

I think the controls need work. It might be a fair game if the controls were adjustable, but the buttons are all over the keyboard, and hard to get from this one to that one. Example, trying to run and jump over something at the same time is three different buttons, none of which are friendly. Maybe if I had ten fingers on one hand, but I don't see what all the hype is about. It is simply a side scroll game, I have seen better.

Somehow I never knew of this game as a kid. Been playing through it. Pretty slick! Funny that Blizzard was involved and it has Orcs.

Loved this game, not sure if I loved killing the trapped prisoners, or the entire game, but loved it regardless.
