I found out the reason for the issue with the color versions, it appears to be a incompatibility caused by the move from 24-bit to 32-bit quickdraw. The issue was never fixed, see section 2 at:

Tried this on an LC running Mac OS 7. Technically runs, but the display gets all futzed up. My copy says that it supports color on a Mac II, though. Disk boots System 5.

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' with 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User

I think this game also works in Basilisk set to 16 colors.
Someone could check this, please.

I remember playing this game with my dad, it was freaking hard! Trying to get down the mountain and back up in time, holly freaking cow.
