    Is this game compatible with Windows 10? Every time I try to run the install program to install the game it says "this app cant run on this PC"

    When we save the game and then reload the saved game, it starts over again from the beginning the level saved. But it keeps the total amount of the "gold" collected... bug?

    How do you save a puzzle in progress?

    Hi Gabriel, yes, you do need an emulator. Follow the "how to run old games" link at the top of the page to learn how to do so.

    Hey so I downloaded D-Fend Reloaded successfully and have tried to run the file through that program but it just exits out. It loads the first screen in fullscreen but then goes black and quits. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? I put these files into the D-Fend program: MIDPAK and SOUNDRV. I did these ones cuz they are MS-DOS. Would love some help! THANKS :D

    Hi jUDITH, what do you mean by different system codes? It's a zip archive; after unzipping, you should use an MSDOS emulator like DOSbox or, even better, look for D-Fend Reloaded.

    FAVE game of my childhood and even until now, once I figure out how to open.

    Issues opening once downloaded.

    it opens to a page with different system codes.
