Here are solutions for issues observed on Win10:

Issue: Background music played only ones, not looping.
Solution: winmm wrapper resolving known Windows bug, e.g.

Issue: Impossible to high jump on geysers on 2-2, 2-3 levels.
Solution: game physics is tied to FPS, use dgVoodoo2, restrics FPS to 30

Works almost perfectly (minor graphical glitches) with PCEm + Win98 properly set up. :)

Oh how, I remember playing this game with a buddy of mine when we were kids. This is so nostalgic. I will definitely download and try it now see if it lives up to my nostalgia trip expectations.

I installed the game, fixed the audio with _inmm, set compatibility with windows 95, game runs perfect but with no sound effects (cannon shots)
