I'm sorry I exited the game and deleted the files from the dosbox directory.

This game has to be run on dos box if your system is windows 7 or greater. Dos box has a full screen option that can be set to true in the option.bat file in it's program file folder.
Place the extracted gizmos and gadgets at your root directory. Ie c:\gizmos and gadgets. I recommend renaming the folder to something simple like gizmos.
Now run dos box. Type the following commands and hit enter after each command. Please note that capitalization is important
MOUNT C C:\gizmos
ssg -gv -so
Game should run for you.

This game needs to be updated to today's technology. My kids loved this game and learned a lot from it

This works in DosBox, however, it seems to be using a resolution that is too small. Some of the puzzles are impossible to solve because you have to match 4 things, when only 3 are visible.

I work with an autistic student who LOVES this game. Problem is, when I download it, it just gives me compressed files. I have unzipped them but it doesn't allow me to do anything after that. I have Windows 10. HELP!!!!

"Must be installed on Windows, do not use DosBOX!"
For Windows 7 and later it has to be run using DosBOX. It runs perfectly that way and It can't be played any other way.

hi would love to re live my child hood and play this on my computer....
why wont it work on windows 8???
Jay 2014-12-20 3 points DOS version
This is great for being able to play the basic game, build the vehicles, solve puzzles, and throw bananas at monkeys, but it's not quite the same as the original. There's no voice, there's no puzzle customization (for turning off the puzzle types you don't like), and the music/sound is not quite what I remember it being.

So can you guys play this on Windows 7 without the use of DoSBox? Or does it mean that you need to play it on an older version of Windows?

I can't even tell you how many hours of this game I put in when we got our first mac over a decade ago, the nostalgia is real

Still no sound, after changing the compatibility, on windows XP
How do I do what the readfirst file says?
There are a few command line switches that you can try if you have problems
getting the game to work.
To make sound adjustments:
-si pc speaker
-sb Sound Blaster
-sm Microsoft Sound System
-sn sound off
For example, to run with Sound Blaster settings you'd type
ssg -sb (enter)
to start the game.

icecreamdaddy 2014-01-09 0 point DOS version
solved it u.u
DOSbox is the answer.
Knowbody 2013-09-27 0 point DOS version
Since this is a 16-bit game, it won't run in a 64-bit OS unless you use DOSbox or something.
It might run in Windows XP, but I haven't tried.
yoshomie 2013-08-23 1 point DOS version
Yes this is an awesome game!
to all those wondering about windows play use: dosbox there are plenty of guides on how to use it.
For Android try dosbox turbo! it rocks even on my crappy phone it runs really well.

I used to love this game a long time ago... now my son is learning how to play. Thank you very much!
Kay 2013-01-06 0 point DOS version
I'm running this through D-Fend Reloaded, and I can hear the sounds but I can't see any picture? I'm running 64-bit Windows 7.

#4483 I'm not sure which game you are thinking of, but this game is part of the Super Solver's franchise, all of which I believe use the same character.
Bigthan 2012-11-13 0 point DOS version
I got it working great using a DOS emulator, DOSBOX. It's free and if you look up the "Setup and Installation of DOSBox" instructions it's pretty simple to setup and use.
Computerfail 2012-09-18 1 point DOS version
When I try to install, an error message reads that my computer settings are incompatible... what to do? And yeah I did take the files out of the zip folder but ugh I don't understand computers. Thanks in advance if anyone ever reads this.
hmm 2012-09-01 0 point DOS version
does anybody remember the game before this one with the same character? In that one you went around to ancient tombs.
Tybo 2012-06-11 0 point DOS version
I remember this game from when I was a kid. We only had one copy and we would fight over who got to play it.

How do I download this on vista? I really want to play this game.
dyfrio 2012-01-15 0 point DOS version
i seem to be find a lot that apparently dont contain the .exe actually
Hiro 2011-10-21 0 point DOS version
Tried right clicking the setup.exe and running it under windows xp and even windows 95 compatibility. Nothing.
Nadia 2011-08-07 0 point DOS version
When I opened the downloaded file and extracted it with WinRar, it gave me a lot of different things. What do I click on to make it run?
admin 2011-07-04 0 point DOS version
This is a windows application, you need to run the setup from windows. Works very well of Windows XP !
Reba 2011-07-02 0 point DOS version
I keep getting the "Given folder does not have an executable file" message when I try to load the unzipped folder into my D-Fend reloaded. Is there something I'm missing, here? This is the only game I've had trouble with so far.
Rianna 2011-05-07 0 point DOS version
Ah, I was trying to get it to run on windows 7 64 bit, but I have an old xp box and it works fine on that. Thanks for the help!
admin 2011-05-03 0 point DOS version
Just ran this on a windows XP computer, installation went fine.
What you should do though is :
Right click on the program (or shortcut, or setup if it doesn't work) and set compatibility mode to windows 95, or the oldest you can get.
Rianna 2011-04-29 1 point DOS version
I've just downloaded the files, and although there is a setup file, there doesn't appear to be a program file. When I extracted the files, it gave a message about there being an encryption problem. I haven't had this problem with any other games. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!
Debbie 2011-03-15 0 point DOS version
Will this be able to run with DOSBox *with* sound? I already have a program but I'm unable to get any audio with the game :(
admin 2011-03-14 0 point DOS version
Hi Dela, this is a windows application and you won't be able to play it on a mac without an additionnal software.
You will have to install it on a windows machine or install on your mac a software like CrossOver.
