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.

Mobygames has screenshots showing color graphics in the DOS version: http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/ba...on/screenshots

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.

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

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

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

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