Looks like the zip is missing a few files? The install file is looking for a _sq1.bat file, but that doesn't exist in the zip.

Once you get the game loaded in dos-box, type SQ to start it. P.S. SQ NEEDS to be capital.

When I try to launch the game in DOSBox I get the message "bad program image". Can anyone help? I'm no DOS expert.

Silly, serious, stupid, scary,... and space lizards. All in one game. Use laguage, (ill) logic, and arrow keys to escape from your broom closet and exact revenge on those scaly slithering slimeballs. Go forth, Roger Wilco, and polish your destiny!
