In the first place I thought I've signed for the E-Mail advertisement I wrote about below,
but either I missed it or had not received one.

The Application Systems Heidelberg list of Catalina-capable games lists Oxyd as well:

They will put it on Steam, planned back in spring 2020, but it is not yet available:

And the Oxyd Wikipedia links to
which currently states "Oxyd: Game paused". Look at the picture at this site, Germans may are familiar with it while the television device had no reception.

Oxyd comes back to current hardware now:

2017, August 25: We are working on a new version of Oxyd.
More informations can be found at Heise, Twitter, and Facebook.

2017, August 25: Porting our iOS projects away from XCode4 is too expensive,
so we stop supporting them, in order to develop the upcoming Oxyd version.

You'll have to use BasiliskII (specifically, build 142) and enable the "more complete ADB mouse emulation" option, if memory serves. There's a few other games, such as Arashi, that require this. Otherwise, as you stated, the mouse goes totally haywire.

I found a German tribute webpage named Dongleware-Museum about all released Dongleware games and applications (link). The most games were released first for the Atari ST(E) and later also ported to Amiga, MS-DOS and Macintosh. There was even a version of Oxyd Magnum for the NeXT computer !

There are some downloads of the games at the Dongleware museum, mostly the Atari ST versions. Most Macintosh version can be downloaded here at Macintosh Gardens. But I have not found any downloads of the Dongleware games for the PC and the NeXT.

So if you can upload these to our website, it would be very appreciated (especially the NeXTstep version of Oxyd Magnum, if you have it !!).

THIS is the game we always played in computer lab, especially during lunch when you got free passes to play games. I sure miss the 90s. It doesn't work in Sheepshaver for any OS version because the mouse goes crazy. I have complete PC versions of all 4 (oxyd, magnum, extra, per) I may post them in the forum if they permit it... so go have a gander.

This game was interesting because it was a full version with a twist, you could only get so far into the game without help, to purchase the game, you actually purchase the games walkthrough guide from the creators, that is how they made their money.

I would be quite interested in obtaining that walkthrough if I could play this game but I cannot. You need a mac with either black and white or 16 colours able monitor and my eMac doesn't display 16 colours. I refuse to play this game in black and white.
