Is there a simple way to quit the Finder automatically as an application starts? Some games like Diablo have such a function built-in as an option.

I wonder if this would successfully get around the MultiFinder issue when going above System 6 with this game.

Just to echo and restate the comments above; clicking outside of the window will "background" the game and bring the focus back to the computer desktop. I remember getting very frustrated with this behavior when I was younger, and I stopped playing because of this. Maybe now that my attention span is somewhat longe... hey, what's that?

Simply not compatible to MultiFinder or Mac OS 7 upwards.

Tested and seems to run okay in Mini vMac with system 6.

Simple and well-made. It's a pity the guy's dead. I've been playing it under System 6 on an SE, in Finder instead of MultiFinder; on some later computers I've found that clicking will occasionally take you out of the game and back into the Finder, as if you clicked on a Finder window--this is distracting. Note: before you play this, print up a listing of which symbols in the old Cairo font correspond to which letters; there are messages and passwords to decode every two levels (if you want to bother) until level 10, when you use the passwords to "enter the King's Tomb" (picture and bonus points).
