    I have taken the BIOs and ROM file from the Mac OS version of the game found under "<game>.app\Contents\Resources" folder and used them with RetroArch's Final Burn Alpha core and the game runs on the emulator.

    "We picked through a few of the sale's downloads to find ROM files that are compatible with the popular Multi Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME), meaning classic-gaming purists with dedicated MAME boxes now have a far more legal and frugal way to load classics like The Last Blade and King of the Monsters in their home arcade cabinets."
