Will the game run in DOS as well?

If so you can download "Dosbox" and run it that way.

Windows 95 game? I don't know man that's pushing it...

I know you can't play a bunch of games on the 64 bit version of Vista, so it may just be a compatibility issue you can't do anything about :/

Many if not all windows 95 games will also run in dos and a dos emulator is easy to download for free.

if you cant get it to work they released that game on sega genesis too, so it shouldnt be that hard to find emu/rom for it.

Can the critics still deny that the geometry of matter is directly related to the harmonic interweaving of light itself? There is no substance, in the absolute sense. We live in a reality of un-reality; all is an illusion and the stuff that dreams are made of. Our physical world is nothing more than a resonating ball of light and shade."

"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."
