For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
This game works with: SheepShaver,

The download image that was here previously has been removed for cleaning. It was infected with 666 virus. A new, clean copy is now uploaded. The ISO works when mounted with Virtual CD/DVD Utility. Create a disk image on Sheepshaver/Basilisk II that is large enough to contain the ISO (500-800MB), then place the image file in there, then use the program to mount the image. If that still doesn't work, mount the ISO in the Images section first, then use the Virtual CD/DVD utility's Create a CD Image function, select the mounted ISO, and put it on the 500-800MB disk image you created.

Another work-around: Use the MacroMind Player on the Intro Macromedia Player file in the Mac folder on the CD, and besides a few errors every now and then, the game works perfectly.

This comments section here is pretty much the most information we have on the game all in one area. If anyone is able to find the extremely obscure sequel to this game, Return to Jurassic, you'll pretty much be the toast of the ghost-town of abandonware. It also may be vaguely easier in Australia. (2020 EDIT: Someone is finally about to upload their copy of the game!)

I have found a clean replacement copy and will upload it very soon. So no need to clean the existing

Yes, thanks for the heads-up. I'll repair and re-upload this tomorrow. But yes, a pristine disc image would be better. I see this one is Finder date stamped 2015, so it wasn't done correctly to begin with.

I'm removing what's here from the page in the meantime.

You are absolutely correct, Winfire. The disc is infected. Thank you for alerting us to this. It is going to be a royal pain to fix this as it is a hybrid disc image, and will involve reconstructing the image after fixing the Mac side. It would be much easier if someone has a pristine disc image to replace it.

Um this game is 68k compatible as I tested it and also the Install Me First app on the iso is infected with the SevenDust Virus so that should be fixed as I found out that I was infected and it was the culprit. So I thought I would just let everyone know

One of the most horrifying children's games of all time.

I keep trying that utility, but MAN, it is impossible to get to work on anything. I even tried also installing Basilisk and System 7.5 just to see it was my version that wouldn't let it work, but still! Have you tried that? I did just find a bit of a work-around, though... editing the thing right now.

You could try mounting the image inside Sheepshaver with Virtual DVD/CDROM util. Mac OS sees all Sheepshaver mounted harddisk/cd images as floppy disks.
