I would be very happy if my boy would be interested in adventure games.
How old are your Mini-Godzillas?

That's strange. First I don't remember this game. Okay, it's my fault.

But second: it consists of only 3 disks!

Twilight 2000

Is anyone having access to a copy of Twilight 2000?


The game had been fully completed and reviewed for AGA Amigas in 1994, but not released.
