A youtube video has been released for the spectrum version, covers some of the history it as well as looking at the games.

At 1:43 the game clip looks suspiciously like it could be off an BBC/Electron.

Hey Col - could you post a Mode 7 ascii-hex dump of every file on the tapes please? The Beeb and Elk versions of each I think would be good.... :-k

Oh! gawd #-o
Does anyone have a time machine?
One that goes back a few weeks should suffice, so I could go back and not-write this thread :lol:
I would however prefer one that goes back to 1983 so I may persuade Guy Ulrich Wilhelmy not to take up a career in games programming [-o<

Apparently Mr Wilhelmy's most recent job was working for VW. He was asked to devise an emission control system for their diesel engines which would work in real life conditions AND under emission testing conditions. Seems he misheard his boss and mistook OR for AND. I wonder where he'll turn up next? Only joking of course, the publisher is to blame, they'd have probably even released some of my lame attempts (although I was quite proud of my Blake's 7 adventure, the loading screen was magnificent....)
