Never released???
 
Hi all.

Been indexing the old "Svet Kompjutera" magazines for online reading (check http://retrospec.sgn.net/users/tomcat/yu/mag.php) and stumbled upon some never released amiga games with screenshots... here is the list so far:

Botts: http://pc.sux.org/SK/1992/09/SK_92_09_073.jpg
Dark Blade: http://pc.sux.org/SK/1994/02/SK_94_02_074.jpg
Evasive Action: http://pc.sux.org/SK/1994/02/SK_94_02_074.jpg
Myra: http://pc.sux.org/SK/1993/02/Feb9377.jpg
Frogger: http://pc.sux.org/SK/1991/11/Nov9180.jpg

Anyone has more info on some of these ?

I'd make a guess that 'Dark Blade' became 'Black Viper'...

And Evasive Action looks familiar, a bit like Overlord or one of those games.

Hang on, didn't Glynn Williams (Warhead) do Evasive Action, but only for the stinking pc in the end?

Yup : http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/evasive-action
Had it and was not impressed tbh ;)

I believe there was a big preview of evasive action in an issue of CD32pro, I remember lusting after it at the time.

I'm heading back home for a visit at the weekend so I'll see if I can find the boxes of miggy mags that I slung into the loft when I moved out...

I'm sure there were quite a few promising previews that never came to anything (or ended up getting PC only releases) in CD32 pro's gaming supplements.

Finally got round to having a rummage in the loft and found the preview.

My memory failed me as to the source: the magazine was called 32 and was the games suppliment with Amiga Pro, a short lived but well produced UK magazine. They seemed to stop producing the games suppliment after 4 issues or so though.

I've scanned their coverage of Evasive Action, you can get at it below, but it seems to me like the screen shots are from the PC version, I seem to remember seeing screen shots in another mag, if I'm back home any time soon I'll have another look.

I'm pretty sure there was also a preview in The One, but as you say I think it was a pc version with an optimistic idea that it would appear (real soon now!) on the Amiga.

BOTSS or battle of the solar system seems to be a prototype microprose arcade game.

I think that frogger game (from bulfrog) DID come out. It was a coverdisk game for Amiga Power, Issue 6 (Bullfrogger). Despite the lush gfx, IIRC it was pretty crap.

T_hairy_bootson 18 January 2010 13:55

Nice work heavy stylus. Seems to be on Amiga Power Disk 6 and called Bullfrogger. :D

On closer inspection, it seems to be different the one posted here :(

I just saw the name, Peter Molyneux and assumed it meant a Bullfrog version of the game...

From the screenshot in the magazine article, it seems we are actually looking for 'Frogger 2'.

Actually, looking at the OP's scans, it looks like the original mag got a bit confused, the Evasive Action screen shot there actually looks like Overlord, a ww2 flight sim from Rowan I think it was.
