This is a 2D game, so it does not require a high end pc to run. If you can run the game at full speed with or without speed hacks, and your pc is slower than this, please change the pc specs in this section. CKL

Probably a very easy game for this hardware to run; graphics and sound run smoothly. Use settings below to clean up minor issues. One could run the full game with the Software renderer to avoid the movie/cutscene problems, but Hardware mode looks sharper. tradesofjack
