I've recently installed version 1.5 on my Centris 660AV. It plays really well on this Mac as version 1.5 is AV friendly. But getting the manuals from your 1.4 upload has really helped me to understand how to play this game too. Thanks, MCP.

Wouldn't expect you to upgrade the emulation status for this, just yet...
Only letting you know that this game is playing very nicely on the alpha Mac II port of Mini vMac. No crashes playing this game on it, so far 8-)

When the Mac II emulation of Mini vMac became stable, we have to re-think about Mini vMac compatibility listing. Current set is b/w classic (9") size only.

This game works in Mini vMac - The alpha Mac II variations port of Mini vMac, that is Laughing out loud

I've been playing this game using Mini vMac variations 26 and 2013 successfully (Mac OS 7.1.1) - and it hasn't crashed this alpha Mac II yet!

Mini vMac "Variation 26" has a 640 x 480 display and "Variation 2013" has a 800 x 600 display, both of these give 256 colors. Mini vMac variations are currently built here.
