Press 'Y' (for 'Yes').

I never give the advice to press every key since it sounds stupid. I use that method often, though. Perhaps I should rethink my principle.

Manual, reference card, in-game help? But it's the most direct way and always works, I just think it sounds stupid:

"The game freezes, what should I do?"

"Did you press every key?"

If I don't know that there is an uncommon key command, I presume that the questioner checked that the game is really frozen.

Well I had the enhanced version before instead of the manual one (way back in the day compared to this version) and there were several locations where it would freeze on me without a y or n question being shown. The secret was to hit Y or N (most of the time Y) to unfreeze it.

Will this game play at all on Windows 7? I loved this game as a kid and would really love the chance to play it again. :]

It's possible, but not directly. DOSBox will work on Windows 7, and this game will work in DOSBox.
