This game has to be run on dos box if your system is windows 7 or greater. Dos box has a full screen option that can be set to true in the option.bat file in it′s program file folder.
Place the extracted gizmos and gadgets at your root directory. Ie c:gizmos and gadgets. I recommend renaming the folder to something simple like gizmos.
Now run dos box. Type the following commands and hit enter after each command. Please note that capitalization is important
MOUNT C C:gizmos
ssg -gv -so
Game should run for you.
Still no sound, after changing the compatibility, on windows XP
How do I do what the readfirst file says?
There are a few command line switches that you can try if you have problems
getting the game to work.
To make sound adjustments:
-si pc speaker
-sb Sound Blaster
-sm Microsoft Sound System
-sn sound off
For example, to run with Sound Blaster settings you′d type
ssg -sb (enter)
to start the game.
This is great for being able to play the basic game, build the vehicles, solve puzzles, and throw bananas at monkeys, but it′s not quite the same as the original. There′s no voice, there′s no puzzle customization (for turning off the puzzle types you don′t like), and the music/sound is not quite what I remember it being.

This game needs to be updated to today′s technology. My kids loved this game and learned a lot from it
This works in DosBox, however, it seems to be using a resolution that is too small. Some of the puzzles are impossible to solve because you have to match 4 things, when only 3 are visible.
I work with an autistic student who LOVES this game. Problem is, when I download it, it just gives me compressed files. I have unzipped them but it doesn′t allow me to do anything after that. I have Windows 10. HELP!!!!
Must be installed on Windows, do not use DosBOX!
For Windows 7 and later it has to be run using DosBOX. It runs perfectly that way and It can′t be played any other way.
hi would love to re live my child hood and play this on my computer….
why wont it work on windows 8???
So can you guys play this on Windows 7 without the use of DoSBox? Or does it mean that you need to play it on an older version of Windows?
I can′t even tell you how many hours of this game I put in when we got our first mac over a decade ago, the nostalgia is real
Oh my God I suddenly remembered this game from childhood today and googled it. I loved it so much then and played it a LOT!
OMG i used to have this game and then i got a new computer and i wasn′t able to play it any more but now i can, 8 years i′ve waited, trying to se if it would work and now it does. YAYYY!!!!!!!!!
Since this is a 16-bit game, it won′t run in a 64-bit OS unless you use DOSbox or something.
It might run in Windows XP, but I haven′t tried.
Yes this is an awesome game!
to all those wondering about windows play use: dosbox there are plenty of guides on how to use it.
For Android try dosbox turbo! it rocks even on my crappy phone it runs really well.
jeez, I badly wanted it since then 🙁
how to increase facebook likes
played this when i was in yr one and two. fell in love with it. changed school and cant play now (-)
YES Hendricks elementary school in the computer lab! have wanted this since then, thank you!
thank you for this! re-living my elementary school time in the computer lab, along with dinopark tycoon
I used to love this game a long time ago… now my son is learning how to play. Thank you very much!
I′m running this through D-Fend Reloaded, and I can hear the sounds but I can′t see any picture? I′m running 64-bit Windows 7.
#4483 I′m not sure which game you are thinking of, but this game is part of the Super Solver′s franchise, all of which I believe use the same character.
I got it working great using a DOS emulator, DOSBOX. It′s free and if you look up the "Setup and Installation of DOSBox" instructions it′s pretty simple to setup and use.
When I try to install, an error message reads that my computer settings are incompatible… what to do? And yeah I did take the files out of the zip folder but ugh I don′t understand computers. Thanks in advance if anyone ever reads this.
does anybody remember the game before this one with the same character? In that one you went around to ancient tombs.
I remember this game from when I was a kid. We only had one copy and we would fight over who got to play it.
I have bad asthma and in grade school on pollen filled days I′d stay inside and play Gizmos and Gadgets!!! Thank you so much!!!
Is there not a version available for 64-bit? I miss this game so much
i seem to be find a lot that apparently dont contain the .exe actually
tells me "does not contain executable file"
Tried right clicking the setup.exe and running it under windows xp and even windows 95 compatibility. Nothing.
When I opened the downloaded file and extracted it with WinRar, it gave me a lot of different things. What do I click on to make it run?
This is a windows application, you need to run the setup from windows. Works very well of Windows XP !
