Hello, a friend of mine is searching for a legit download of this game, which he owns, but which disappeared from his PC for some reason.

 

Monkey Bytes gave him an activation code to unlock the demo, but they couldn't actually furnish him with a copy of the demo. They just told him to look around on the Web and find the demo and download and unlock it.

 

Problem is he hasn't had much luck finding it. Does anybody know of a safe source for it?

 

Tucows has the Mac Classic version, but not the Windows version.

 

Speaking of Windows, these are the system requirements:

 

 

Windows
    o Windows 95/98/NT
    o Pentium 133 Processor (Pentium II or better recommended)
    o DirectX 3 (DirectX 5 or later recommended)

 

Since my friend says the game had been on his computer, but then went away for some reason, I have to wonder if maybe his PC had been running it in some kind of compatibility mode, and then a Windows update might have broken that compatibility?

 

Assuming he does find a copy of this game, is there anything special he'd need to do in order to successfully install and run it on an XP or Windows 7 machine?

 

Thank you in advance for your help with this!
