Summer Olympix AKA Reach Out for gold?

bumped into this one , might be usefull in HOL (ie..also known as...) , also on that page it say US GOLD but if you search in google it find it under Linel.

Seems the Cd32 version of this game changed publishers or something.

While we're at it, B.A.T. II on the Amiga is actually called The Koshan Conspiracy on the PC, please update too

I'd say "Reach Out for Gold" was the pre-release title of the Amiga version. An OCS/ECS disk version was reviewed in Amiga Joker in late 1992 and was going to be published by Linel. For whatever reason it never was released on disk by Linel and then popped up as a planned CD32 release a year later:

http://www.lysator.liu.se/(v1)/amiga...de/ar136.guide

http://groups.google.com.au/group/re...=6&hl=en&fwc=1

Flair mustn't have liked the game's title and renamed the CD32 version to Summer Olympix.
