Not sure if already mentioned, but...
I think Landfall from GT software will be the same game as the Landfall game released by Virgin.
In the Virgin inlay it states that the games author (Gregory Trezise) runs GT Software.

Hi Lee,
Ref Landfall, In the Virgin game it says LANDFALL II once loaded.
So is the Virgin game the same as the GT game or is the Virgin game a sequel or amended/expanded version?
We may still need to get the GT copy to find out!

Dunno :roll:
Whilst looking at other Virgin games adverts I found that Space Adventure (originally by Pro Software) was by R. Thomas and A. Thomas.

Hi Lee,
IIRC The Virgin inlay has them as Andrew and Roger Thomas.

Quest for the Golden Wombat by Foxsoft
After much searching I've finally found a reference to the above in the Pendragon article in June 1989's issue of Electron User (p24):
Wombat.jpg
There's also mention of "I Spy Red" and, in the next paragraph, Sodasoft's The Genesis Project (presumably a completely different game to the Audiogenic one).
