This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

The only simulation of its kind released outside medical circles, G-Netix is an excellent and extremely comprehensive simulation of genetic engineering. The program is more of a simulated lab/software toy than a game: you are given the tools to experiment with the human embryo in an artificial womb, modifying its DNA and observing the result. With a staggering array of options, you can examine and modify DNA sequences to your heart's content; you can even copy and paste DNA sequences from several animals such as insects into the embryo and see what happens. G-Netix is a great way to experiment with genetic engineering in ways that would be illegal, not to mention morally objectionable, in a real-life lab. [...] Although its narrow appeal and technical nature means it is definitely not everyone's cup of tea, G-Netix is an outstanding program that succeeds in what it sets out to do: offer a realistic, extensive virtual genetic engineering lab. Highly recommended.

Seems to not like Mac OS 8 as well.

Now available with full documentation and disk images from original media. It doesn't seem to like OS 9; in any case I wouldn't recommend software from this era on anything but Systems 6 & 7. I was able to run it in Mini vMac with System 6, no problems.

I couldn't get this to work! Looks intriguing though, will keep trying.
