Cookie's Bustle is a point-and-click adventure game with a dark sense of humour released by Rodik, Inc. in 1999. This Windows version was designed for Windows 98; it also runs on later versions of Windows, but with audio glitches.
In the 19th century, a UFO crash-landed in the tiny South Pacific country of Bombo World. In exchange for advanced technology, Bombo World traded the northern part of the island to the aliens, where they established their city of Dero City. A hundred years later, Dero City has become famous for its annual sports tournament. A five-year-old girl named Cookie Blair travels alone in the hopes of competing, but will she be pulled into something larger?
Cookie's Bustle is an adventure game in which the player guides Cookie throughout Dero City to guide her towards her goal of competing in the sports competition. The control scheme is very simple; Cookie moves on her own to follow the cursor wherever it's pointed on screen, and most actions can be taken by positioning her without clicking on anything. Once she actually enters the tournament, there are minigames for each of the sports.
The cookie_01.iso file is a single ISO containing the game, suitable for use with a virtual machine. The ccd/sub/img files are a CloneCD image which preserve subchannel data.

For those experiencing crackling audio...
For those of you who are running this game in an old version of Windows but are still having issues with the audio (specifically crackling and popping noises) try installing QuickTime 4.12 instead of the version that comes bundled on the game disc. This fixed those issues for me.
Great job preserving this game, by the way!
EDIT: I experienced a crash on my Windows XP virtual machine when talking to the guy standing next to Jose's Taco, but I was able to fix it by installing update files that were released for the Mac version. The files in question were extracted for usage on Windows machines by the user torridgristle. You can find the files here.

Runs on Windows XP Oracle VM
You can install it on modern systems, but it'll have laggy audio. Use a virtual machine to run it.
