For System 1 - 5 - System 6.x
Emulation
This game works with: Mini vMac

Cairo Shootout belongs in a group of different genre's with an arcade styled shooting gallery crossed with an egyptian game, the idea was to shoot a certain amount of tiles on the screen using the pointer, it even has some rather strange sounds to go with it.. Duane Blehm sadly passed away shortly after this release, hence the source code never being released. His parents decided that the game was to be released as Freeware, no limitations. Thank you Mr and Mrs Blehm, your son was a champ!

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).
