What works

Pretty much everything apart from a couple of little glitches.

What does not

Minor problems:

Sound is a little glitchy with hardware sound setting, Disable hardware sound acceleration to fix this.

Graphical glitch found in windowed mode when multitasking and switching between applications meaning that the window goes blank white. I Recommend playing in full screen mode to avoid this.

Both problems are overcome no problem, this is a brilliant game and well worth playing.


What was not tested

Running game exclusively without steam client, I assume steam makes little difference to performance as game seems to run fine (apart from ).

If all else fails there is always the original dos game which should run fine under Dosbox or ScummVM.

Additional Comments

Was run under Steam on Ubuntu (actually had proper desktop icon by default unlike under windows)

HowTo / Notes

Classic Mode
The "classic" graphics are accessible via PgUp/PgDn and not F10 like the in-game help states. This might be a bug in WINE.
