MacZip was used to compress this archive. If extracting this image on a classic system, Mac OS 9 and earlier, use the same to extract contents of this zip file correctly.

  The toast file isn't a toast file, it's a 'virtual floppy disk'

If you don't use MacZip to extract, you can still use Toast to mount or burn this image by pointing Toast towards where the .toast file was extracted to. However as this image was zipped using MacZip, only by using MacZip to extract this particular image, will Toast's original "Creator" and file "Type" codes be correctly restored, as mrdav points out below.

Most uncompressed HFS disk images, whether they are .toast, .iso, .cdr, etc; will mount on the desktop of a Mac emulator when introduced as an external (virtual disk) drive.

- If you are going to do this but wish to keep the image in its original form, it should be locked before mounting. Otherwise the emulated Mac OS will modify the content with time stamps & other hidden files as the disk is mounted/unmounted or when the emulated session ends.

We used to play these games on the C64 and Amiga - they were great fun, making maps for each level, etc. Thankfully Spiderweb / Ambrosia (and Blizzard to some degree) still make such games for the Mac

Yes, it is a Toast file. The archive is made with MacZip. You need to uncompress the archive with MacZip. Then you will see that the Toast really is a Toast file. (I just checked again and it is recognised by the Toast application and can be mounted by it)

The toast file isn't a toast file, it's a 'virtual floppy disk', something that MiniVmac and BasiliskII can use.
