To anyone having trouble emulating: While the game runs fine in Win9x, this game ALSO works on Windows 3.1 (Yoot tower is only win9x compatible tho)
Windows 3.1 Is way easier and faster to emulate thanks to DosBox. The only VM solution that supports Win9x is pcEM, but that is very slow unless you have a beast of a computer.
Also there is a 1.1b patch on the Internet Archive. This fixes a bug where after saving many times in the same play trough, the game will crash.

Does this one save? Can it save game? I downloaded one from a different website and it works, but then when I try to save nothing happen, the save window won't even close when I clicked ok. I'd have to start over again and continue.

Hi all who do not run Windows 95 /older version of Win or who do not emulate an older version:
If abandonware page doesn't work:
Yoot tower runs on modern windows, my Windows 10 64-bit for example it runs stable. Its the same game, just about. Enjoy and you're welcome.

I don't suppose this will work on kindle fire? Long shot but thought I'd ask.

Does this not work with Dosbox? If so, how? I can't figure it out.

Yeah, she's a PDF. The file was compiled incorrectly. Skip this one. Please fix. This game was amazing back in the day.

If you're downloading the Mac version, it's a "Stuffit" archive file, which means you'll need to have Stuffit Expander (http://www.stuffit.com/) or similar that can unarchive Stuffit files.
Once done, put it into a directory where OS 9 can access (or, if running under OS X, put it into a directory where Mac Classic can access. NOTE: You will also need to have Classic installed, if you're using OS X 10.4 or below. Any Mac OS X above, you're SOOL, unless you emulate.)

If you want to play this game, it's fairly easy to do, with some work, but it will also help you run other games. Download the ISO file and and use something Daemon Tools to run the file. Next, use bootcamp or some other program to emulate WIndows 95,98, or xp. Run the game in the emulated operating system.
Doing this will run most games on this site.

As with the above comments, this isn't the game. It's a text file with strange characters.

Unfortunately download didn't work for me, showing "You can’t open the application “SimTower” because it may be damaged or incomplete."
