Hello,
Did someone try to run this game on Pi 3?
Recommended Requirements:
Pentium III, 256 MB RAM, 2 GB space.
Do you think that this game will run good on Raspberry Pi 3? I Just wana buy one and play some old games. :)
Thanks for help!

That game will not run well. First off, it's complied for an x86 processor (the Pis use ARM cores) so it would have to run under a simulator. Second, although you don't say so, it is probably meant to run on an MS Windows machine so you'd also have to run with a Windows simulator. Thus it would be very, very slow. Games written for MS-DOS can run okay but when you add the need to create a pseudo-Windows environment, not so much.

You're welcome. It's a fairly frequent type of "Can I do X..." post. It is refreshing to see someone who can take the explanation without objecting and saying it must be wrong and isn't there way around the problems. I think you will grow to be a valuable member of the community.
