Actually is the only full working version existing.

All is born in this thread:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=88891, from message #5 onward.

There is also some old posts about it:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=78527, http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=66749
and an interview with the original programmer:

Now game make use of the 2nd joystick button for the weapon selection and
use memory above 512kb to cache data and cut down loading time.
A complete trainer option screen [+6] is at disposal with a selectable new "max power-up",
start level, invincibility and other cheat.
Finally a proper end of the game can be reached.

Fixing this game was a fun journey, i've discovered even some bugs not directly related to the game .
Yes, there was several bugs.. Anyway the game engine is really good!

More significative patches:
- support all Amiga (ocs to aga, 020+, every memory configuration)
- do not crash anymore on level 3 or other "strange" situation
- end of game/credit part is reachable
- high scores table works properly
- standard 880k ADF, fast loading
- use extra-memory if available

The history of this game has been very troubled, so it deserve to be properly preserved.
A big thanks to all involved (credits in the initial intro).

In The Zone! Enjoy!
I looked at the zone and I couldn't find it there.

I started this version yesterday. Very hard game but I'm slowly moving forward. Thanks for work Ross and StingRay.

BTW. I have small graphician errors during playing. I tried to test disk straight from disk but to my suprise game didn't start on EC030 with 32Mb Fast.
