The Jetsons: George Jetson and the Secret of Robotopia

This 2-diskette graphic adventure game by Microillusions would be great to have in WHDLoad. It was pretty innovative for 1989, with a cool story and really good graphics. The biggest strike against it would have to be the not one, not two, but THREE stupid maze-style situations.

It sounds like a great game. I’ve never had the pleasure of playing it yet. I agree it would be great to have a WHDLoad version since it sounds like that has not been done yet.

There is one listed on whdownload:
Version 1.0 - 2007-01-12 = 370.34 KB Zip file
Which unpacks to 830,703 bytes ??? = Not 2 (full) Disks

That file is also linked to SPS
http://www.softpres.org/?id=:games&gameid=2270
and that file is "Jetsons: The Computer Game"
which is one disk.

Text file confirms it ain't the one:
"This patch applies to "Jetsons" (c) 1992 PAL Developments/Hi-Tec - 1 disk.
Thanks to Tony Aksnes for sending the original!"

Yes indeed, that's a completely different game. The one I'm referring to is the one in the longplay that Pyromania linked to on youtube. It was one of the first games I got for my Amiga 500 back in 1989. I have a feeling it didn't get very wide distribution back in the day. It took a lot of the ideas that ICOM implemented and combined it with an amusing yet interesting story. It was made unnecessarily difficult by the mazes I mentioned. Judging by the longplay, I got to about the 40% mark before I got too frustrated with it and moved on to another game. There weren't any walkthroughs for it back then either, so it wasn't until I saw this longplay that I got to see it all the way to the end. Certainly worthy of a WHDLoad entry, in my opinion of course!

Sadly I don't have enought knowledge to do a whdload version of this game, but i have basic skills to convert ADFs into a single ADF and HDF file!
This has been a simple task to do because - you are on luck - ADFs are standard ADOS disks, and i think that could be easily created a generic whdload version too, but i'm not so good in this way, Aladin is the master about this specific task! )
My versions are based on ADF tosec version of the game: downloading it from EAB FTP (exactly 'Jetsons, The - George Jetson and the Legend of Robotopia v1.0 (1989-11-06)(MicroIllusions)(Disk 'N' of 2)[cr PNA].zip'), merging both disks into one folder and making a bootable ADF/HDF version (tested with WinUAE latest version, both versions work like a charm with really fast ingame loading for the HDF one )
ADF version needs a basic A500+ (NOT A500!) quickstart config with DF0 floppy setted to 3.5" HD (Turbo Mode is higly reccomended)
HDF version needs a basic A500 quickstart config with no other specs, and is strongly reccomended because it's faster that the ADF one
IMPORTANT: For both versions, avoid to run them with a basic A1200 quickstart config due to graphic glitches that don't occur on A500/A500+ config.
Anyway, just uploaded both versions to The Zone: ENJOY!
