Version identification as reported in the CD's setup.inf file. Not presently known what (if any) other revisions are out there. Any further updates are unlikely, both because of the game's own age (1996) and the fact that the development studio is defunct as of 1997.

What works

Wine 6.21 crashes upon opening the installer. However, having installed it under 6.0.2 without any problems, I can also confirm that it cannot run either. Under both 6.0.2 and 6.21, it immediately exits to a fatal error as follows: 

"Error: failed to load device driver

Error number: 1016"

If it matters, I remember running this once before, in the significant past. If I recall correctly, Wine at the time was somewhere within version 5. The game launched then, only to hard-freeze immediately after Terraglyph's studio logo sequence. Given it's a fullscreen game, I did ultimately give up and just ctrl-alt-backspace out of it.

What does not

It functions in older Windows and DOS (it's dual-format), though it must be noted that the Wine 5 behavior is similar to how it behaves in Windows 10.


What was not tested

Gameplay in general, due to its inability to launch.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

The game and its originating franchise are quite dear to me, and not without cause. The music's quite good, holding up surprisingly well for its age and target demographic.
