I made an open-source version of this game. It works on Windows 7 and Mac OS:

For HM - not sure if you will read this but the official site has a Mac version. Works perfectly.

How about a Mac version of Sherlock? Love that game, but I'm a Mac person now.

Just tried the windows demo on win7 and it works fine with midi and everything, so they might've fixed that bug. It is however limited to just 5(!!!) puzzles in the windows version and for a 1991 game I find the price of $19.95 pretty steep.

Oh, and it is probably the best logic game of all time in my humble opinion too.

This was/is my favorite logic game of all time. So glad I found this! The last published Windows version isn't fully compatible with Windows 7, so I've been having to hum the old MIDI sequence to myself *dum ma lum, dumma lum, dum a lum, dum, bad da da da da da da da, bad da da da da da da da, da!*
