    Does this game exist for the mac paltform, OS X or OS 9? I googled it and I got a lot of various answers.

    Unfortunately, I don't think that it is supported (natively at least). There have been loads of rumours over the years that it was going to be ported, but as far as I can tell, nothing has come of this.

    I tried it on Virtual PC a couple of years ago, and it was playable, but a bit glitchy. This wasn't with the latest incarnation of VPC though, so it might be improved with the new version.

    It doesn't use the ScummVM engine either, so it doesn't look like you can go down this route either. :mad:

    I tried it under VPC on my G5 a couple of months ago, and it wasn't playable. It may not have even loaded properly, can't remember.

    I used VPC 6 on a 800MHz G4 iMac, and it loaded OK. The animation would skip a few frames every so often & the sound lagged (so I turned it to text only & it was better), but it was playable.

    Maybe the upgrade to VPC 7 has broken it, as Nermal says above.
