There is also support for Prehistorik 2.


Blues Brothers

The data files of the Amiga or DOS version, full game or demo, are required.

*.BIN, *.CK1, *.CK2, *.SQL, *.SQV, *.SQZ

For sounds and music, the Amiga version files or the ExoticA set need to be copied.

Jukebox Adventure

The data files of the DOS version are required.

*.EAT, *.MOD

Prehistorik 2

The data files of the DOS version, full game or demo, are required.

*.SQZ, *.TRK


Compared to the original DOS executables, the rewritten engines feature:

  • horizontal scrolling
  • configurable screen size
  • game cheats: unlimited lifes and energy, no hit


By default, the executable loads the data files from the current directory. This can be changed using command line switches.
