This game doesn't seem to work on windows Xp in any of the comaptibility modes and I tried all variations. It also doesn't work in my windows 95 machine and I have a voodoo 3 card in that one. Any ideas on how to get this one to work?

This game seems kinda nitpicking about hardware/software/OS specs.
Tried it on W95-W98 with several Videocards, also some Voodoo cards:

(That's only a sample of the ones I tried, just saying ....)

Finally got it running on a P1/200/W98SE with a .... S3virge 4MB:

Good ol'S3virge, you can always count on that versatile videocard.

It seems in fact weird I couldn't get it to run with the Voodoo cards as the game advertise itself in the readme as a full 3DFX game. Ahwell, can be a combination of hardware/software/drivers/who knows/etcetera/blah blah/.... as so many games from that era.
I won't dig deeper in this, as it's an extremely boring crappy game, already lost enough time on it.

Also: the game requires DX6, seems to dislike anything higher.

The game also runs in VPC2007/W98SE, but if it's worth the effort, I seriously doubt it, kinda boring game in fact.

Same remark as above: needs DX6.

Conclusion: runs on old hardware, DX6, no Voodoo or other 3DFX card.

Maybe I should try my Matrox vidcard ...? naaaaa, that crappy game isn't worth it.

I got it to work on my windows 95 machine. I had to download a patch for it to run using my Voodoo card. I got the patch at The Patch Scrolls.

Says a lot about the coding when you need a patch to get a 1997-3DFX game running on a W95 PC with a Voodoo .... *sigh*

Anyway, let us know what you think about the game, will you?
Maybe you gonna like it ...? But I doubt it.
