Description of Disney's The Emperor's New Groove

Description from the publisher:

The Emperor's New Groove, about a young, selfish Incan ruler named Kuzco, is based on the Disney movie of the same name. Kuzco's power-hungry adviser Yzma plots to kill him and claim the throne, but accidentally transforms Kuzco into a llama, instead. After being rescued by a good-hearted villager named Pacha, Kuzco begins a journey to locate a magic potion that'll turn him back into a human, so that he can reclaim his throne. Players will explore eight worlds during this quest, with gameplay mixing movie-like visuals, puzzles, fighting, platform-style action, and comic rapport.

I had trouble getting the game to run in a playable way on Windows 10. I was able to launch it, but the graphics had issues and it kept crashing before I could make my way through the main menu.

Emulating the PS1 version worked fine, though (had to download it from a different site of course). I actually ended up emulating it on a N3DS with custom firmware through RetroArch, but I'm sure it would work fine on any PS1 emulator installed on a PC. :)

The game crash after 5 minutes. If you has luck, then you can complete a level. The game crash 8x on the night level, before i can complete it. If the game crash, you lose all level progress on the last start from the game. So you need after complete a Level, close the game under the main menu and open it again

Speedrun the game or you need a lot of level restarts
