I doubt the box has ever been opened, but the shrink wrap does not seem to have come from the factory.

Thanks for looking!

Why don't I have a custom title by now?!

That shrinkwrap looks OK to me. The stuff often shrinks a bit with age, resulting in flimsy boxes like that one being partially crushed. I have several in a similar state.

I have another that has thinner plastic that overlaps on the back. The seal types are completely different. Is it possible that this game has two different seal types out there?

Here are some photos to supplement my previous post:

The one I believe to be authentic

http://i48.tinypic.com/350trwh.jpg - Notice the overlapping plastic
http://i49.tinypic.com/4q0okz.jpg - Notice no seam on the edges

The one I believe to be re-sealed

http://i45.tinypic.com/2q8snqr.jpg - Notice NO overlapping plastic
http://i48.tinypic.com/231d2b.jpg - Notice the presence of a seam on the edges

What is going on here?

I saw that same boxed shareware in a Radioshack about ten years ago. I regret not buying it.
