    Does not seem to work in Windows 8. Any solution?

    Maju, I honestly don't know how to run Holiday Islands on Windows 8. I tried running in compatibility mode with no success. As far as I know, the only way is to run it in Windows XP using a Virtual Machine.

    There is a way to work in Windows 8. Download XP mode from Microsoft's website. It is a free software for developers to test programs on XP. Then put this game in there then everything's good.
