MD5: ccb0a2f944b5794fededcd9822be482b
For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

No doubt one of the most unique and disturbing adventures ever, Bad Mojo's premise is refreshingly original: you are a misanthropic, selfish young man who's turned into a cockroach by the powers that be, to put yourself "in others' shoes," euphemistically speaking. Gameplay is restricted to the moving cursors (but hey, you are a roach), but there are many ingenious puzzles that require thought, intuition, and astute observation. The acting is over-the-top, but tolerable. Movie snippets appear throughout the game to provide clues and move the plot along.

Overall, Bad Mojo offers a unique premise, great graphics, and inventive gameplay that provides plenty of thought-provoking puzzles without an inventory (hey, you are a roach)-- making it a must-play for all adventure gamers. It is probably NOT for everyone due to a disturbing focus and some downright disgusting graphics. If you are not easily disgusted, though, you will likely find Bad Mojo one of the most original adventure games you'll have ever played. Two thumbs up, way up!

Great game... weird and disturbing but now i know why Dr House makes the voice of that professor in the movie Monsters Vs Aliens...

Thanks to the editor who removed Mac OS X compatibility, as this is not a Mac OS X native title... Smile

Found minimum system requirements for original Mac version at

System Requirements Mac: 68040, 8MB RAM, 2X CD-ROM drive, Mac OS 7.0

So this one should also run in Basilisk.

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' by 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User

I expected this is the old Mac version. Wink
Win system requirements of Redux are 98 up to XP, P3/800MHz so far.
Mac system requirements of Redux are PowerPC G3 with 9.0.4

Redux is with re-rendered graphics but only adjusted to run under Classic in OSX.

Ah, this are the differences. Thanks.

On the other hand, my PC/Mac hybrid Redux CD is a german version.
I know for sure it runs in SheepShaver.

For larger compatibility, your one, which runs in Mac OS 7.0 and up, is the one with greater emulator compatibility.

@IIGS User: no, this is the old Mac version. Redux is with re-rendered graphics but only adjusted to run under Classic in OSX. Not native in OSX. A no-go to Leopard/MacIntel thus. I´m not familiar with the Win sys reqs for Redux.

I do own Bad Mojo Redux (PC/Mac hybrid CD), but are there any differences between Bad Mojo and Bad Mojo Redux on the Mac?

Is this one hybrid?

The demo was intriguing, atmospheric and cool. I was thoroughly disappointed when, years later, I finally got to play the full game. The FMVs were hideous and the puzzles tedious. I have to admit, those FMVs are worth laughing at.
