An well-done version of the game (I don't know if this is a port...or the original). This game was an absolute dog for me to get running on the PC. In fact, I don't think it's possible to run this on a PC at present unless you have a compatible video card. UniVBE, soundcard bugs, etc...
Fortunately, the Mac version runs quite well. Even better than "7th Guest". Note that this game requires a 68040 as the bare minimum and prefers a PPC. Full-screen video works adequately, although it can "chug" slowly when it displays detailed "panning" video. Fortunately, this doesn't happen all that often and has little-to-no effect on gameplay. Using the "dynamic" version of Basilisk speeds things up a little, but everything becomes a lot less stable.
It does appear to "crash" when you quit the game (generates a system error, followed by a Mac reboot), but this is the only noticeable bug and it does no harm to the OS or it's files.
A little on the slow side for video. Finding the Mac version can be a pain.
Easy start-up. Does everything it should with no fussing with Soundcard IRQ's etc... Runs smoothly, graphics are excellent. No UniVBE, no game-destroying bugs, no annoying "work-around" files needed. Just insert the CD's, install, and click the icon to play.
