Nice. Does it specify if the languages are also game options?

I guess we can check that when you upload the disk images as mentioned there:

It would be funny if there was a French option and it turned as unprofessional as the German version is deemed to be.

I'm actually creating SPS dump of the game.there is something under winuae that the game doesn't like, it exits with the sentence "Wake up. Time to Die. Catastrophic DOS ERROR in track file.c line 352"

This announce either a bug or a copy protection. also while the game seems to be standard DOS disks, it's recognised as MFM disks (i think that once the ADFs will be online, if someone can check what happens....)

EDIT : the game copyright is 1993 and my version is AMI v1.2 (Amiga release v1.2)

That's quite interesting. Among the reviews for the game there is one from 1993 (while the other reviews start at best in February 1194). It is in German (Amiga Joker) so I cannot determine if they say anything about them reviewing the full game or a preview/review version:

Interestingly, the screenshots are in English.


There must be an interesting story behind all this. I hope one day we will know all about it.
