Tested in DOSBox version 0.74 (2010-08-28 10:16) AdventuresUnited
Game version: German language version from 1994
Game media: CD-ROM (1)
Soundcard settings: SB16,P:220,I:7,DMA:1

The game is running well, just the mouse cursor appears to be flickering when moved over animated background elements, which has no bad impact on the gameplay though. After installing the game from CD it also can be played from an ISO-image, which provides a better performance of the game when loading data. By the way, the game CD also contains audio tracks with the game soundtrack.
Works fine in 0.65 (2006-07-29 05:59) Lupo
The game install routine from CD expects a cd label 'Noctrop'. Simply use -label Noctrop when mounting the drive and everything works fine!

Install broken in 0.65 (2006-05-23 03:06) galeo
The game install routine from CD is apparently broken in 0.65. After the install path is chosen it returns an error message saying it can't find CD #1.

It installs fine under 0.63.

Apart from this the game is fully playable under 0.65 after it's installed.

The OS is Linux, no idea if it's the same in other platforms.
