    "Abandonware" isn't actually legal/free. It just refers to the fact that the company isn't around to sue you as most people understand.

    There are many variations of this title on many systems and a lot are homebrew too.

    That would be the resolution of the game, just change it and it should fix it...Try another one, try all if you have to.

    This game came out for the Atari Lynx and it's a pretty passable version. I would look into a Lynx emulator (on PC, Wii, DS, etc.) and try and find the ROM.
