The sequel to Let's Go Read! 1: An Island Adventure featuring Robby the Raccoon and Emily the Squirrel. The download is a hybrid TOAST image created with Roxio Toast Titanium 6 on OS X.

Tested on my Indigo iMac G3 (2000, 350MHz) running Mac OS 9.2.1 and found no issues at all, however I have not tested the included IBM Via Voice that came with the game.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC

Requires a 68040 or PowerPC with System 7.1 up to Mac OS 9.2.2. Native Checker says that the game is 68k only.

Thanks for this one. I can confirm that the game is running in SheepShaver, kind of.
The screen must be set to 256 colours and I did run the Ocean Adventure (PPC) app inside the lets Let´s Go Read OA folder. Installation was custom without microphone input.
Host OS is macOS Sierra, guest OS 8.6. Lets see whether anybody else can confirm.
Might be worth a try tun run the game on a Windows (virtual) machine too.

I will DL this tomorrow. Unfortunately, my Internet connection is slow, very slow. But I will test that as soon as possible...

[Edit] Hi Katie,

Well, I have tested the game under Basilisk & SheepShaver. But I have bad news. Under Basilisk, the game start well, but will crash just after filling the name. Under SheepShaver, the game start, with no video (black screen), only the sound works. There is an application named "Mic Setup" launched just after the installation & an error message "Couldn't initialize sound input. There was an unknown system error" appears. Finally, I can click on the center of the screen & the image appears. But, I cannot use sound recognition system because in the sound control panel, there is no input audio source. I suppose SheepShaver don't use this function. And the via voice system installed works only with PPC platforms, then only with SheepShaver. Sorry. I've added some screenshoots. I can say that there is no problem to mount the toast image & add it in SheepShaver.

Thanks for the response, "Mac Touch"! If you want, you can fill in the missing information (such as Screenshots, and Emulation Information) for this. It saves me some time, as I don't have the knowledge about Mac emulators. Again, Thanks!

Well, I unpacked the TOAST image on my MacBook running El Capitan. It unpacked successfully! Disk Utility recognizes the image when I click the burn disk image menu item without doing anything to the dialog box, and I did the image on a faulty PowerBook G4 running Tiger using Roxio Toast Titanium 6 after one successful try at uploading (The first try failed and one day later I had to do it again). Unfortunately, the Speech Recognition software is not tested on SheepShaver or on my iMac G3 running Mac OS 9, so I need someone to test the disc image of this game and see if the Speech Recognition software and the emulation of the game work in Basilisk II and SheepShaver. I tested the physical copy of the game with Mac OS 9, but I haven't tried it in emulation nor tried the Speech Recognition. Plus, I don't have SheepShaver installed so now is the chance to test this game out just to make sure it works! It was last August of 2016 and I still haven't got a response from anyone.

Can you check the TOAST image to see if I did it correctly? I did this on my faulty PowerBook G4 and on the first try, it failed a few times, and on the second try, it worked without any hitch! (maybe it's just my PowerBook that's the problem on the first try?) From my perspective, the Native Checker thinks that the game on my hard drive of my Indigo iMac G3 is a 68k, the rest on the CD are Fat Binary or PowerPC-native apps so can you also check that too? (This was possibly on error in the description.) Thanks! P.S. My copy went through all of the disc from the light to medium scratches on the underside.
