For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, ScummVM

This is a spiffed-up remake of the original Space Quest 1. It's almost identical to the original except for the improved graphics, sounds and music. And it uses the (then new) mouse-driven icon interface.

You play as janitor Roger Wilco, who works on the space station Arcada. The evil Sariens attack the station and steal the Star Generator, killing everyone while you survive by sleeping in a storage closet. Realizing that the Sariens will use the Star Generator as a weapon of mass destruction, you decide to stop them.

Can't get this one to work on a 1st gen PowerPC Mac. The installer freezes the Mac. If copying the files manually over, I get a type 10 error when trying to start the game. This seems to be 68k Mac only, unless there is a PPC patch somewhere. (judging from the 'support' Sierra always showed for the Mac, I have my doubts)

Beefed up the description on this one!
