This game works with: Basilisk II,

An action-platformer similar to console games of its time, with lush graphics. What follows is a description from the Version 3 packaging:

You are Blade, Point Lancer of the Guardian Legion, a genetically tailored army, serving as earth's ultimate defense and attack force.

After years of training, it came the time for hibernation, a necessity to keep the Legion in eternal vigilance. With all your knowledge, you entered the stasis chamber, hoping never to be awakened for your designed purpose.

Your vision comes slowly clear from the haze of the years, more than you imagined. You step from the chamber. You are no longer in the Legion Base, but on a grassy knoll in the middle of a strange alien forest.

In the midst of the scattered remains of humanity you find a stasis container. Disabling the field, to your relief and surprise the box contains your set of Micron Blades and Reflex Exoskeleton battle armor.

Your mission – discover the fate of the Guardian Legion and defeat the oppressors of humanity.

"The graphics in Blade are spectacularly surreal. The backgrounds remind me of a cross between Salvador Dali paintings and illustrations from a Dr. Seuss book." – Richard Popko, MacWorld

I found some information on this game here:,_1.44MB_3_1/2%2...

Also I came into possession of the first version of the game and I've uploaded it, including PDF scans of the box and papers, which are different from later versions. Compatibility-wise I'm sure the later version is probably the best option for playing.
