So I was recently inspired (ok bored at work) to look up my favorite computer game as a kid.

Turns out the game is still out there so I can finally prove to people that I did not completely imagine this game (made by the same studio as Duke Nukem actually).

On the off chance that anyone on this forum may have even heard of this game, is it known if the purchasable version is the full game with all three episodes? I'm guessing it is, considering they still offer the first episode as a free shareware download. Also, how much of a pain is it to get a game designed to run in Windows 3.1 or in DOS on an XP machine? They have a link to a download called DOSBox but I've never experimented with it.

This site has a link/url that says it leads to downloading all 3 episodes. I didn't go there, so I can't speak to whether or not its virus free, but it does claim to have all three episodes available for download.

Ps...I remember playing this game as a kid. I loved it!!! :thumbsup:

WOW! What a great game it was :)
I just downloaded and installed it in "D-Fend Reloaded" and it plays wonderfully.
Thanks for sharing :)

I think the games I remember most as a kid are Cosmo, the Kings Quest series, and Joe and Mac B)

I'm loving the game as an adult too. :D

Also if anyone's curious there is no problem at all downloading the files and installing them on an XP machine!
