Hi,
i downloaded the game. It is OK. But it is only a shareware. I don't finish the game and it is boring because it is almost finished when i am blocked. Can you help me ?
Thanks.

Could you explain a bit more what kind of help you'd like? If find the game boring up to the point where you hit the shareware limit, in which way could we help you?

Hi,
I would know if somebody have the complete version. I believe that the game is no longer commercialized (too old, he is abandonned).

Please understand that we cannot help you here with obtaining a shareware key or an unlocked full version. "Abandonware" is a legally grey area and unless there is something like a statement by the game's creator that the unlocked game can be distributed freely, it's not even sure if the game is actually abandoned. It might surprise you, but there are actually developers still actively selling their age-old software, even if it doesn't run without emulators on modern machines.

How sure are you anyway that the full game has more content? I just ran it in an emulator and the shareware notice only said that registering the game would remove the nag messages at launching and quitting the game, and giving you access to the developer's next game. So it's quite possible that what you have now is all there is. This would also fit to what is stated in the game's documentation:

Quote

This game was originally prepared for the commercial distribution, but it would have come out only in six months. The authors decided to give this game in shareware and concentrate on the current project.
