Hi LuigiThirty, great to know new Windows 3.1 games are being made still! Please join us on Libera Chat, ##win31


Really cool! Small bug, here on the 3rd line it gives me the last E in yellow even though there is no 2nd E in the word. The "popular version" would put it in black/red

Works fine on WinXP SP3!
