Let's Play: Runaway - A Road Adventure

Ahoy captain! Ask me about Loom... Ahem, that was the wrong videogame. This is one of the best adventure games ever created since the golden era of the point-and-click adventure games (early 90's). Great graphics, deep plot, a beautiful woman, a smart guy, some crazy people and a group of dancing transexuals.. Ladies and gentlemen, this is "Runaway: A Road Adventure"!!!!

A hard choice...

Runaway - A Road Adventure on Crossover XI (11.2.0 engine):

The game installs and works perfectly!

Runaway - A Road Adventure on PlayOnLinux (Wine 1.5.12 version):

The game installs and works perfectly!

Well, this is a 2001 videogame, so it is supposed to work with both Crossover XI and PlayOnLinux/Wine. In fact, the game works good with both programs so the question is: are you a Crossover customer? If not, just use Wine and you'll be satisfied. As Crossover customer, i use Crossover to support it.

Talking about performances?

First of all my hardware:

agp_aperture_size: 256
cpu: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor
cpu_ghz: 0.80
distro: Ubuntu 12.04 precise
kernel: 3.2.0-31-generic
machine_bitness: 64
memory: 3953
soundcard: HDA ATI SB at 0xfbcf4000 irq 16
soundcard_driver: ALSA Version 1.0.24
videocard_direct: True
videocard_driver_version: 4.2.0 NVIDIA 304.43
videocard_manufacturer: NVIDIA Corporation
videocard_ram: 1024
videocard_type: GeForce GTX 550 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
x_version: X.Org X Server 1.11.3

Unfortunately, i had some troubles in showing FPS, so i couldn't make a comparison between Ubuntu and Windows. BUT, since this is an old game, and it does not require any powerful machine, it works really good, without any FPS drop or any stuttering.

Conclusion: use whatever you want, Crossover XI or PlayOnLinux/Wine.


This is the DVD installation from the DVD contained into "Runaway 2: The Dream of the Turtle".
The process takes about 3 minutes.
If you do the complete installation, you won't need any noDVD crack, so i suggest it.


That's all. Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment if you got some problems or if you just wanna ask me a question. I will always answer you!
