How does Leopard Seal incident, mentioned in the intro, correspond with the original New Zealand story? I read Wally Walrus on Amiga NZS box. Was it different in various platforms?

Additionally - look at the Kiwi's name in NZS: he is Tiki Kiwi in all the boxed releases.

But this official advertisement names him as Joey Kiwi. http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/adve...d_story_01.jpg

Seems the marketing guys in Ocean were on drugs

Eeep. I used the Wikipedia description of the game, which describes the villain as a leopard seal. That honestly makes slightly more sense - the Walrus is a northern hemisphere creature as opposed to the southern hemisphere Leopard seal, also the villain from NZS does not (so far as I can tell) have the distinctive tusks of a walrus.

Minor note since I'm updating the post anyway. These are what the random pickups mean:
  • Green spiral - A pounamu (aka jade/greenstone) carving
  • Buzzy Bee - This is the popular New Zealand children's toy
  • Kiwifruit - Self evident
  • Footwear - Depending where you're from, they're either Jandals (NZ), Thongs (Australia), or Flip-Flops (UK/US)
  • Drink bottle - This is L&P, a popular NZ fizzy drink
  • Rugby ball - Self evident
  • Oscar statue - A reference to Lord of the Ring's success in that regard
  • Rocket launcher - Self evident except for the letters "SPNKR" on the side. This is a Halo reference.

In the Amiga version the protagonist was called Tiki, and the villian was a Leopard Seal (although I have also heard of it being referred to as Willy/Wally the Walrus). Here's a screenshot from the Amiga version

Can anybody confirm that CD32 version works on an A1200 with CD drive?

I'm 99% sure that, if your Amiga setup can play CD32 games with music (such as the CD32 editions of Zool), it should work just fine with this as well.

Having said that, tracker music for HDD Amigas is on the way.

I'm not confident about handling a jewel case myself, but I'm happy for someone else to have a go at it.

This is the original artwork for the title screen if it's any use - https://i.imgur.com/UHFk9B4.png

Also, I put it through the Waifu2X scaler to upscale it without (much) quality loss - https://i.imgur.com/Y78I7Oi.png
