If you have packaging, it usually will state.

If no packaging, then simply use Google to see the specs/prerequisites for running, etc. I don't game, but I would expect that info to be available at the website of the game developer.

16-bit games (generally) are older, some users run into minor problems when trying to run on XP, Vista, Win 7.
