It would be amazingly awesome if this game was in my apple App Store. I use to love this game as a kid and it helped me learn how to read. unfortunately I don’t have a computer but myself along with others would love to play this game just once more in our lives. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

How did you get it to run, Bob? I am on windows 10 and even using compatibility mode "Set up. exe" doesn't run. It just says incompatibility with 64 bit

Windows version please?

Does indeed install just fine for Windows. I'm on Windows 10 and not only does it install just fine, it players perfectly as well. Some minor coloration issues I've noticed in the top-right, but nothing you wouldn't expect from an older game and not even remotely distracting. Not in the least.

This game is short; you can easily finish it in a couple hours, but it's sweet.

That Dr. Dabble may be vengeful and devious, but he sure has a swanky house and he knows how to host a party. Much of the humor in the game comes from the newspaper articles and other reading selections, so don't skip over them because you're in a hurry.

FYI, this game works in old Windows up to XP as well, the disc is for both OS types.

I've managed to get it open in SheepShaver, but just the title screen of the game opens then goes "The program resources could not be found. Please make sure the CD-ROM is loaded." I've made sure to include all the files from the download onto the SheepShaver...any suggestions?

I want to download it but I can't

Yoloswag, are you trying to use this game on Mac OS X? To run it, you must use Sheepshaver, which is a Mac OS 9 emulator. This game cannot run on Intel Macs.

It tells me "You can't open the application "%@" because it may be damaged or incomplete."
