Ran in sheepshaver. Works great. Love this game as it reminds me of my elementary school days... I'm planning to get a Power Mac 5500 (I think we had the 5200 in school) but a 5500 will assure all these good old apps will run at optimal performance. I'd rather not go with a G3 or G4 because they may have speed issues... Props to whoever posted this game.

It says it requires G3 Throttle, but G3 throttle will only work for a G3. I am running an iMac G4.
I tried out the game however, and it came up with warning dialogs several times while the game was starting up. I clicked continue each time, and it worked!
It's a very cool game, but it's a little fast on an 800MHz CPU.

By the way, is there any free G4 Throttle? I googled it, but couldn't find anything.

Seems to run best in SheepShaver. It crashed Basilisk II on my system. Your results, however, may vary.
