Try running it under Windows 3.0 or 3.1 using a Virtual PC. The color works like a champ.

I see the screens, but I've never seen the color in a released DOS version. Weird.

TotalAnarchy To get the colors, I think you're supposed to run it in Windows 2.1.

The Fifth Horseman The Atari and Amiga screens on Moby are showing color too, and they certainly don't look like the alleged DOS version.

I don't think that's the DOS version, unless Crawford reissued it with coloration later on, and I missed the change.

EDIT: Oh ho. This site notes that there was an Atari ST version that used a a color 640 x 240 mode.

Borodin Not sure what images you're referring to in color. Can you provide a couple of links? Because I reviewed it when it came out--have my copy, still--and it's in B&W.
