Emulation
This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

"The third installment of the roleplaying series, with a multi-faceted plot full of twists and turns. Ease of use was central to the gameplay and interface, and the plot included piles of new twists and turns.

Lead a party of adventurers to rendezvous with the legendary wizard Corak. From dark moldy dungeons, through corridors of hewn stone and timber, and onward to the lofty frozen peaks of Terra you will uncover the mysteries that surround the exotic islands in the Great Sea." --MobyGames.com

Seems so, IIGS_User. I was able to track down the 1.02 update (as added to this page) and after applying it, the game seems to work on PowerPC. So obviously with the update they killed some of the 68k instructions that would crash the game on a PPC Mac.

Edit: added moneybags, a save game patcher that solves your money problems in M&M III.

Have not tried, but probably a PowerPC problem?

Is this thing buggy or what? I can get a few meters from the starting point in Fountain Head until I enter battle with a Moose Rat. This is where the game freezes for me. Tested both on a PowerMac G4 and OS9 and a PowerMac 6100 running 7.6.1. Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Considering how popular this game is, it's surprising this page hadn't been updated more. Anyway, I've added more details and a better archive to the page, including the monochrome data that was missing before, so now it will work with Mini vMac.
