Bad Toys 3D on MobyGames


The Windows 3.x version of this game does not work on 64-bit versions of Windows (see Availability for affected versions).

Key points

Impractical to emulate on Windows. The game performs poorly when played at a resolution higher than 320x200 under any kind of emulator. The game can be ran through Wine on Linux systems however.
