The Igor game engine allows the demos to be completed, although there 
has been no progress on the full version.

The game data and logic is hard coded, which makes further progress more 
difficult. The English versions are difficult to find for sale too, 
especially the CD release.

The Igor game engine should be kept, since the game demos are supported, 
and the existing code would be wasted.
