Re: Sphinx Adventure (1983), Acornsoft

The opening banner "WELCOME TO THE SPHINX ADVENTURE / GOOD LUCK IN YOUR EXPLORATIONS HERE!!" (which appears in other versions) isn't displayed at the start of a new game in this version. I don't know why. That's because it is Sphinx V2 which does not contain that message. Sphinx V1 248 : ...

Re: Empire Strikes Back: oddity with Summer Olympiad, and possible source fragments

Hmmm...
I was wondering whether Kevin Blake was developing both of these around the same time, but because he was contracted to Tynesoft, couldn't be associated with the Domark title?

Excellent work guys, I've also been working on the still to find list, the only difference to Lee's is that Microtrust - Crossword Puzzler's advert has already been added. Also in the main topic the Viking games are listed as Miking (which is why I didn't find them initially). Also, a minor point, ...

There are quite a few adverts for "Last days of Doom" complete with free game "Hezarin" adverts, but none from Topologika that I can see. Mainly from resellers such as Impact. There is evidence that some buyers of Last Days Of Doom received an I.O.U for Hezarin, but this "Fo...
