Wow, those do look pretty nice!

I never played the game in Windows, but I might just give this a try (I also have a friend who loves this game and has recently switched to linux, so I'll pass it on to him as well!)

I was impressed at how close they've been able to get it to the original.

Good job guys!

(not that they'll actually read that, lol.)

Maybe that is , because it's a DOS-game?
