" It automatically switches the display to 256 colors, but it doesn't switch back when you exit."
Probably depends on the version of the game (1.x, 2.x).

Hi IIGS!

I uploaded the second version of this game here (t's the 4th download on this page) and it runs in English, Spanish, French and German. The first other three are all first versions of this game.

Read the description I wrote on the fourth download to see what else it adds to the original game. Since it was released in 1997, it should run as a FAT Binary since I think the CD only had one Mac game in it. I know I've run this image within System 7 up to OS 9 with very little issues, but it switches to 8-bit 256 colors and it displays very nicely at a 640 x 480 resolution. It is only 46 MB once decoded, so it is the smallest one here as well, definitely a little gem for sure.. enjoy! Smile

With a little luck, I may yet find the original disk I bought 20 years ago!

If you can find it, which languages does it include?
Comes it 68k only or Fat Binary (68k+PPC)?
Maybe it covers on of the other complete CD images files already,
or it is complete different from them?

When I originally made the image of version two many years ago (the fourth download), I only made a copy of the Mac side. With a little luck, I may yet find the original disk I bought 20 years ago! I loved version one so much when it came out, I got the second one as soon as it became available. It's amazing how much fun these little games were for kids as well as the kids-at-heart.. enjoy! Big smile

Thanks for the JGM bin/cue, good to see the original CD preserved.
The Windows app still seems to work with 32bit systems. My netbook with W10-32 is way too slow, but JGM seems to work basically after installing some helper thingie from MS.
Just imagine that on a Mac. Wink

I have just uploaded a bin/cue of a mixed mode Mac/PC disc (3rd DL). I suspect that it might be the full version that the first download (Mac only image) was taken from.

This is a great Easter egg hunt game for kids. Plus helps them learn to read I suppose.

Funny enough, the first upload (JGM in english/spanish/japanese, being 68k only, 1991) runs fine in SheepShaver, while my upload (JGM in english/german/french, being fat [68k+PPC], 1996), is eating sound in SheepShaver.
