CD-i Emulator Compatibility: This section covers crucial details concerning performance of this specific game under emulation through CD-i Emulator. It will state the CD-i Player Rom used during the test, what version of CD-i Emulator was used, which program the Disc Image was created from, specifications of the test PC and also provide screenshots of the emulator in action. Also included is an account of the test and most importantly if the game is playable through CD-i Emulator. Rather than an exhaustive list of tests with various ROMS and different PC rigs it's hoped that this section gives some insight into the progress of CD-i Emulator. For the most recent updates to CD-i Emulator and compatibility it's suggested you visit the CD-i Emulator Homepage.

Details of Tests: Some minor sound glitches play when the American Interactive Media bumper plays and you must press an action button to progress. The title and menu screens play with some minor pause issues. The various menues can be played without any issues and you can start to play a game. However after a little gameplay time the emulator either gives the 'Dirty Disc' message or Blue Screens.
