If you are wondering why this will not work, this is for older OSes (I don't own this game so I cannot see what platforms they support.)

For anyone who wants to know how to get this game running on a newer computer, you can use Julius ( It works on Mac, Linux, Windows, etc...

(Also, for everyone asking why this is listed as abandonware: Because this is able to be bought on GOG and Steam, they want to make sure you buy the "semi remake" of the game. This version they are hosting the old version of the game that only works on old OSes.)

how is this abandonware when you have to pay for it? this is some bullshit, your website has exactly one job and yet you manage to f**k it up, just great.

Why so many games are listed as abandonware... and your only option is to buy the game on GOG or Steam?

se funcionar tudo bem

lance 2015-05-16 -4 points Mac version

nearly all the games here are for Mac OS 9 you CAN'T run them on OS X. Get a emulator and it will work.

kwack 2015-05-03 1 point Mac version

yeap, doesn't work on OSX. Even when allowing all apps. Sad thing, really wanted to play that game. Nostalgia, nostalgia.

If it says the file is damage go to the apple in the top right corner, system preferences, security, and make sure you can run apps downloaded from anywhere or else it will say the file is damaged.

same thing... downloaded (waited more than half hour), then after extracting it said the file is damaged .... wasted!

aFriend 2015-01-09 1 point Mac version

Tried it on Mac OS X (10.10), says damaged or incomplete file. This seems to be a Power-PC Mac OS game, so beware. as 'EKO' mentioned, there might be options that allow you to use it.

EKO 2015-01-07 2 points Mac version

I have succeed install the game using SheepShaver, but as usual this game is required the CD to play. Is there any "No CD patch" as available on Windows PC?

Saumitra 2014-11-02 4 points Mac version

I installed it and extracted it. When I try opening the installer it says the file is damaged, and thus cannot be opened. Was so looking forward to playing this game!
