Question CJ's 3: CJ in Space

Does anyone know whether this game from Codemasters exists? I have read in a preview in Zero Magazine in June 1992 Codemasters would release this game 'very soon'.
CJ3 is the successor to CJ's Elephant Antics and CJ in the USA.

I wish it was, but I honestly don't believe it was ever completed/released for the Amiga.

Question Any other platform?

Do you know whether the game is released on an other platform (E.g. PC, Console)?

what about their game "Skidz"? I think they canned it in favour of Micro Machines (a very similar game, but somehow, Skidz looked betetr)

isn't Skidz that game you choose either a bicycle or a skate, and have to collect garbage in the streets ?

If that's the one you're talking about (and I doubt, as it doesn't have much to do with Micro Machines), I have it here..

Unhappy Codemasters is dead, long live Codemasters?

Hm, it appears CJ3 is one of the victims of 1992/1993 when Codemasters was turning into a softwarehouse producing only fullprice titles. From the moment they published Micro Machines for the Megadrive the 'old' Codemasters founded by the Darling Brothers was forever gone.

I wonder whether other Codemasters titles in that timeperiod (Bee 52, Grell & Fella, Nobby the Aardvark to name but a few) found their way to the Amiga games buying public.

From what I heard, a supposed "fourth" CJ game was made despite the much rumoured third one never coming into public existence. It was published by Codemasters, but developed by a different company, and not Genesis (who made the first two games). It played very differently compared to Elephant Antics and In The USA, but didn't prove to be as much fun as them. A playable copy exists, luckily.

Codemasters pulled out of the scene before this game could be released into the market.

Unhappy CJ4

Yeah, I know CJ4 on the C64 and it is very different from its predecessors. The game is only horizontal scrolling and very easy to complete. Somehow I think CJ4 is some sort of hack. -some C64 coders who had too much spare time are behind this game.

Nah, Gérard Gourley (aka Gez) did a separate tune for this 4th part, so you can be sure that it's NOT a hack but an official CM release.

This is a true comment - As a kid, coding with C64 etc I played all the Dizzy games. I loved them so much I wrote to Codemasters with the idea of Dizzy in Space. Dizzy crashes and searches alien planet collecting the ship parts to repair and leave. Codemasters didn't reply, but a short while later, CJ gets a holiday. Nice.
