Is it possible to add the Hebrew version of the game?
I tried to find it everywhere on the internet.

I colaborate for the Spanish version (practically just the instructions were translated) of this game back in the 90s, when the company I was working on signed for the rights to sell Compadia software in Mexico. It was my favorite game! I still feel nostalgy when we used to work with Compedia.

Really nostalgic, thank you for uploading! Works great in any pre-Vista VM. Even got it to work on Arch using Wine which really, really surprised me :p

If you ever really need to play this. I've also encountered some errors, mostly the Exe (lost.exe) missing files.
I eventually got it running on Windows XP VirtualBox instead of 3.1/95/98 just normal install and it went without errors first try as the way to the end. I used the ISO over at But from what I've seen in my struggles it seems to be the same as this one.

To ELLY, get VirtualBox and Windows 95 or 98 iso image (98 is better at directx and fully compatible with 95 stuff so I recommend that). Install there and it will work :)
