DISNEY'S ANIMATED STORYBOOK: 101 DALMATIANS


It wasn't only modern classics that Disney adapted for their Animated Storybooks. In 1997, 101 Dalmatians became the first of their evergreen back catalogue to do so. The movie itself is a fun caper that aims for comedy over grand mythologising and stands out because of it. While this storybook is based on the 1961 original movie, it was probably chosen over other classics because of the the blockbuster live action adaptation released the previous year.

The four mini-games here have had more thought put into them, although none are particularly original. The first is a pairs matching game that uses sounds, images and words to assist you in reuniting puppies and their owners. Later on in the game you decipher codes using animal noises and travel through Cruella's mansion as both a hidden objects game and a Pac-Man like maze.

It's not just the mini-games that have improved, but also the graphics and sound design. There is a jazz soundtrack throughout the game that perfectly suits the handsomely drawn images that hark back to the 60s. Even the individual pages have very minor objectives before you can continue making it play like a playschool point-and-click adventure. Like all games in this series, it is charming, educational and almost essential for anyone with rugrats.

  1. Thank you so much! I've been looking for it for too long! It runs perfect on Windows 10. I only have a question, when I clicked "download" there are to files on the carpet, I downloaded both of them tho I only used the .exe file to install, can I delete de other file which extension is .D01? Or should I keep it?

    Thanks again

    1. I'm glad you like it! I think I'll put some more Disney titles up in the New Year:)

      The two files that you download are the installers, which are separated into chunks for an easier download. All files are needed - placed in the same folder - to install the game. You safe to delete the downloaded files (which begin with "Install") once you've installed the game.

  4. Hi I downloaded both files and every time I get to 74% it tells me the game can't be installed. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hello Sweet Pea. I've just tested these files and while it does pause briefly at 74% due to a large file, it still makes it to the end eventually. Try downloading the files again to see if that's any better.

    2. Mine does the same thing - i've re-downloaded the files three times but it always pauses and then crashes at 74%.

    3. Hello and sorry for the problems you're having. I'm not sure what's causing it as I have been unable to replicate it, even when downloading the files again.

      Just in case, I'm going to re-pack and re-upload the files to see if that helps at all. This will be uploaded in a couple of hours so be patient. Let me know if it works.

    4. Hello! Did you find out the cause of the problem of 74 percent? My download also crashes :(

      Delete
    5. Is it the download or the installation? If it's the latter, you'll need to download both files and have them be in the same folder before running the .exe file.

    1. I can, though I have no way of testing it. First, create a bin/cue iso of your CD using IsoBuster/Alcohol 120%/you're choice of program. Place these files in the CD folder from my installer, keeping the same naming convention and replace. If all goes according to plan it should hopefully work.

      If not, a virtual reinstallation is in order. Open DOSBOX.conf in notepad and scroll to the bottom. Place a # in front of the last two lines and save. Run the executable and type WIN to enter Windows 3.1 cleanly. Use the FILE MANAGER in PROGRAM MANAGER to access the CD & HDD files. Remove the # from the conf to automate starting the game (though change folder location if necessary).

      All of my installers are focused on English ('cos that's what I am) so I won't be uploading multi-language versions I'm afraid (unless an EU version easily allows for it). However, if you are successful, let me know how and I'll add it to the FAQ.

    2. Oh my gosh! If you could make an iso of that and share it, that would be really amazing. I've been looking for the spanish version for months and I haven't been able to find it.
