I have a game - Luxor Mahjong - that was designed to run on 32 bit PCs'.

Would I be able to play this game using some sort of VM? What would be best?

32-bit software will run on 64-bit Windows just fine. :)

I'm afraid this one doesn't. Lots of coverage on Google too.

I have installed on Desktop (not Programs X86 due to perceived issues) and although it runs, there is a terrible flicker. The screen is too hard to watch and I can't work out how to fix that.

I read on Google that Programs and ProgramsX86 do checks of some sort to allow pgms to run. Don't really know much about that. I do notice that when first loading the background appears to be at 640 x. I also use a GPU GT730 that doesn't go below 1048.
