There is one option to get a game very easily.
There is a program called Kazaa. You can download that at their website which is http://www.kazaa.com
After you download i,t you search on it on whatever you want. But there is one problem, sometimes if the game is out, it is illegal, except if there is a shareware/demo version of it.
In my previous message, I ment that you can play  the demo/shareware version of it if it is not a freeware.

Apogee no longer distributes Boppin, so try looking on some abandonware site like www.the-underdogs.org .

LOL....I've been to almost every abandonware site.....warez sites, ftp lists & search.....through all the major search engines....until I found a Russian search engine that sent me from China to Germany and back again...then, I found Super Boppin on a Russian site buried in their ftp achives....that was some search but worth the effort! You can find the shareware ver of Boppin all over the place....I just can't believe the full ver has never stayed in circulation.  Oh well, got it now...

Thank you for your input....Beginnerinc & Mennovdh

LOL...Mennovdh  (cute)

Not the same ver....this is the deluxe ver...it's everywhere!  Now go find a link to "Super Ultimate Boppin" the "registered version" with 160 levels.....complete with the Level Editor (to create new levels or edit existing levels)

You didn't think I was stupid....now did ya!?

You let me know when you've found it :)

rainshadow,

The Apogee faq states:

Boppin was available in two forms:  Basic Boppin, which contained only the first two episodes of the game including the shareware version, for $19.95; and Super Boppin, which contained all four episodes and a level editor, for $29.95.

Obviously you were looking for the 4 episode, level editor version. Which is the exact version that is for download at The Underdogs that I gave you a link to. I had convinced myself of that before I posted.

Close but, not quite. The game came as basic Boppin (shareware)....and Boppin Deluxe (1.35Mb - which is the registered ver of basic Boppin & and added episodes) (1.0 & 1.1 respectively) and then there was Super Boppin (shareware v1.0) and Super Ultimate Boppin (registered v1.1 with all episodes-160 levels & level editor). That pretty much sums it up....finding the "registered" ver of Super Boppin 1.1 (2.8Mb) is like finding a needle in a hay stack....however, I did locate it so makes our point here mute. Thanx.....just the same.
