I am both horrified and delighted to see documentary evidence of the game I worked on back in the day. Mainly thank you, though, for taking the time to put this up here. I told people about the game but I didn't think I would ever see it again.

I did the music and graphics, but in all honesty I must strongly contest "Smooth, high quality animated graphics" and "Superb tune and sampled effects"!

Oh well, simpler times and all that.

Thanks for posting a comment Matt, its always good to hear from someone involved in the original game. You certainly aren’t the first that’s mentioned losing all evidence of ever being involved in a game, in fact I think you’re at least the third.

If you have a Pi, you can even play it again...and realise just how frustratingly difficult it gets.
