"When you click on the disk, the game pauses. Now click on LOAD GAME or SAVE GAME. Make sure that you have a data disk available - never, never, never attempt to save to the program disk, because it will never work again! That's because when you save a game the entire contents of the disk are overwritten (Note: This means that only ONE game position can be saved per disk)."

If you're not getting a save option when you click on the disk button in the CD32 version, then perhaps Audiogenic stripped it from the AGA disk version (as Galahad said, due to insufficient space in NVRAM) when they "ported" it over to the CD32 for release. Either that or the save option only pops up if the game detects a disk drive attached to the CD32.

You could try hooking up a floppy drive to your CD32 with a formatted disk inserted and see what happens when you click on the disk in the game. I tried it quickly here on my A1200/030 using a CD32 emulator and from WB with degrading (no caches etc.), but the bugger didn't wannna play ball and I kept getting gurus.
Many many many many thanks for the info - really appreciated!
