Finding how to contact the mods is really easy if someone take the time to click once or twice on the EAB's links. For sure Mr R. S. had no willingness to do so.

Although we don't need (or expect) money now for our past efforts, we all want to see the game played by as many people as possible so they can appreciate the efforts done at the place and time.

12 years since these sweet words...

I've read some good jokes, but here: hat off !

...and now, one should pay 15$-30$ for an Amiga version .
Of course it's possible to ask people to pay so.
Personally, I second akira & Galahad in their thinking.

This isn't a bad idea, but it would never be allowed.


I think it's a shame that the computer which had the biggest pirate scene ever (apart from possibly the 64) now has a community full of people scared of getting in trouble for copying shit.

What you mean is.. A community full of members who have grown, learned and are more respectful of other people's property than they were as youngsters..



You are just a disrespectful, expectant person who thinks everything is yours..

Why has the C64 scene not "grown and learned" then?

Nope, I'm a person who believes that people who have ripped the Amiga community off for the last 15-20 years deserve fuck all.

Amiga users are more evolved... In honestly.. I have no idea on the state of the c64 scene. I never have, I never will.. But i think we have made the eab position here clear,and it is not for debate.

if anyone wants the apk cracked version of this game PM me
I understand your point of view and I'm a fan of the emulation of all systems on PC but in my opinion the charm of having the original Amiga version - and playing it on real Amiga hardware, too - has a completely different flavor ...

However, in my little opinion, it is a pity that a game like this has not been made public!

And so in conclusion, has this thread now run its course?

We're not going to see the Amiga version, if we were, we would have seen it when the hype for it was at its maximum, not some 12 years later!

This is my last word in this thread, i'll no longer give these guys the attention they crave.

This isn't going to be another Putty Squad situation, and these guys clearly lack the business acumen that Mark Cale had to release the Amiga version at the height when other versions were being released.

It was a nice story, but there is no happy ending on this, we were all duped, presumably to support the other versions and build up awareness for them, and it worked.

Well played...... but no more.

Galahad is correct, this has run its course and I am closing this thread now.

If by some miracle the game does surface, then a new fresh thread can be created!
