Well, been trying to Locate this Game for a few Years. Was Released for MAC and PC back then. Finally found it when I was looking through a few old Backup Disks from my PC back in 2003. It was Version 1.0 , but dont bother trying to run it on Current OS. Tried it on Windows 10 (GPD Win) and everything looks good......up until you get In-Game where you only see the Background and the Wins Indicator. Game is still running, but you cant determine where the Paddles, LifeBar, Ball, anything is.
Tried it on my Windows 7 PC, but when it gets to the Main Menu, a Error Box pops up saying Generic, and when you Click OK, the Game Closes on you.
No matter what Compatibility Settings you use, the end results are the same.
Seems the only thing that it does work on is a Virtual Computer running WinXP. Depending on your Hardware and the Virtual Hardware Configuration, will get you anywhere from 75-100% Speed In-Game
I contacted MonkeyByte about the Game and the Rep said he asked around, but so far no one has a Copy anywhere. Hoping they find a Later Build, or Archived Source somewhere they could continue and improve upon.
