Like most Eterna games, this seems to be impossible to even get to the stage 1 boss. I was curious to see what the later stages looked like, and used an infinite energy hack from the Desktop Hacker 1.05 disk. However, once you kill the stage 1 boss the screen goes black. This might be due to the hack module, or it might be that there is a bug preventing progress.

It's probably a protection check, I'll investigate

EDIT: Some sectors are missing from the floppy image, I'll re-image and update the OP and PackMan packages in due course.

The disc images in the OP and the package have now been updated.

There's also an updated obey.zip which adds the invulnerability cheat to the boot script...see the HD install notes for details.

Thanks, tested it and got to the end, this is the message you get:

Not sure if it's a bug with the game itself (quite likely I imagine) or a result of the hack.
