I'd be inclined to start trawling through HOL and seeing if it jogs a memory. Ideally you want to be able to browse a collection of Amiga mags for the advert!

Ha, I googled this and the only results are Mick_AKA asking this on forums. There's a thread on another forum where the guy says he googled it, and all he got was Mick_AKA asking it on this forum.

I seem to remember this advertisement. That places it either in CU Amiga magazine from 1993 until it closed, or the Amiga Format 1992 special. AMR doesn't scan advertisements (it should!) and all my Amiga magazines are buried under 10 years' worth of boxes and papers.

Or it could be one of those phrases that sounds like it's from somethign but isn't, like the movie quote, "That's the beauty of it! It doesn't DO anything!"

I'm sure I remember it being written on a gravestone in an advert.

It's familiar to me as well.

Are you sure it's a retro game? Might it be Baldur's Gate?

But if it was that legendary title, it would have come up in Jonathan's Google search.

Hmmm...Goldrush?

Can you narrow it down to which years of which magazines you read?
