Does anyone know how to get this to view in color

I'm not sure, but probably with a display set to 16 colors only?

Does anyone know how to get this to view in color I have a Ibook g3 white 500 mhz os 9.2.2 and the last time i played this game was in the 1990's and it was in color.

What if I have a problem with the program where its not letting me play the game, cause I tried to download the game and it was giving me a hard time. Is it because I don't have a mac notebook?

Yep, it may be rather a long shot for you, if you never thought about Classic Mac emulation with e.g. BasiliskII, but imagine all the cool games from this site you could play!
If you don't want to take a plunge into Mac emulation and can't buy a ten years old Mac, there is only one possibility I can think of: A software called "Executor" that will run certain old Mac apps on Windows boxes.
Executor will only play the scuba dude in black and white without sound.

by Glamourdiva22 - 2011, April 28 - 2:33am

okay. now thats suppose to help me be able to play the game?

Please head over to and start a new topic there.
Plenty of people are willing to help you with running this game (and others) in Mac emulation.
Best describe your PC/notebook and the kind of WinDOS you are using.
For running the game in color, BasiliskII or SheepShaver will do fine.
Please do read the guides for setting up the emulators, you will know what to ask after reading.
Best wishes!

I would like to play the color version. Really? I have internet explorer is that what you mean by operating system? I didn't know there was ever a black and white version, I only knew of the color version when I use to play it in the first grade.

Actually it is possible to play especially this game on almost every recent computer.
There is a bunch of solutions available.
What is your operating system?
Do you want to play the color version, or would black and white be sufficient?

by Glamourdiva22 - 2011, April 26 - 10:03pm

I was afraid that was going to happen that I will be unable to play this game on my computer. I wish there was a website where I could play it on a website. This suxs. after all these years I finally found this game and now I am unable to play it.

I am afraid you will need a Mac, emulated or real hardware, for any of the games in this forum. may be a good starting point for emulation.
Setting up an emulated classic Mac is pretty simple with most host systems.
Viruses are not a big issue with Macs.
Most malware these days is programmed for Windows

IDK I have a dell and it won't work and I am afraid that if I download one of these things I don't want it to cause a virus to my notebook. How do I go about to play this game even though I don't have a mac notebook?

Glamourdiva22 - What is the problem exactly?
I just played the game in SheepShaver after inflating the file with Stuffit Deluxe5.

by Glamourdiva22 - 2011, April 26 - 2:38am

Is there anyway I can play this game? Cause I really loved this game when I was in first grade thats when I first started to play this game. I was so happy that after all these years I finally found this game. I wish I was able to play this game to bring back memories. Talking about mouse practice with the scuba diver dude.

Called Mouse Basics, frely available from Apple:

in the Utilities section. Also look out for Macintosh Basics and Macintosh Tutorial. ResEdit v2.1.3 is also there.

That is awesome. The sooner I can pick up an LC the better (don't feel like dealing w/emulation). Will have to snoop around a System 6 install disk set I guess!

Yes there was, it came on the System disks for all the Macs around that time, or with Mac OS 7 at least. I bet you can still get it as a download from Apple.

Was there a program like this which was black & white and showed a Mac desktop set up on a person's desk in their home or office? I seem to recall seeing an Apple tutorial video/program where it showed how to move the mouse, how to click, and all that. But it didn't have full color like this program does (that I can recall).. It was around the days of very late 80's or so, 1989, 1990, 1991..

I love this program. I used to play it many times as a kid.
I know it's a mouse tutorial program but it was fun.

by Zebonka - 2009, August 17 - 2:29pm

Holy cow!!!! The first thing I ever saw running on my LC 630, I haven't seen it since that day in 1995...
