It's an unreleased game according to the auction. The seller is a bit slow/dodgy too (I've dealt with him in the past), so hmmmm.......

It was probably someone made in 10 minutes in AMOS or something like that. Plus I have seen this "unreleased super rare game" on eBay before...

This seller (plox66) is one of eBay's most dodgy in the Amiga world. He hides his feedback, and when he first appeared on eBay under a different name (see, he's even had to change his name!) I bought four games off him at the same time: Shadow of the Third Moon, Abuse, Ultimate Extreme Racing (which I'm sure never existed and he's just made it himself from user-made tracks and add-ons), and Pinball Prelude. He advertised them as being "NEW!" but they were all just CD-RW's with poorly scanned and printed covers, and delivery was slooooow. Obviously someone with a CD-RW, a basic scanner, and colour inkjet printer who's decided to make some money on eBay from piracy of Amiga games. I was going to buy Extractors from him (the follow-up to Diggers, never released) but I decided against it because of my previous experience. I'll put money on Pinocchio being the same.

I think I have this game too. Isn't it a CDTV release? No that I think twice, I am sure I have this, but it is pile of shite. Even a 5 year old kid can turn into a psychotic bastard since this is unplayable...

I don't want to state the obvious but why doesn't someone who is interested in this game use the "ask the seller" option ?

Here's the questions I would ask (to the point)....

1 - Is this game a copy ?

2 - Does he have any comments on everything that people are saying in this forum (point him to the link) ?

That's how ebay is supposed to work isn't it ? If he says it ain't a pirate and then it is you complain to ebay + trading standards or whatever.

If he ignores you then he probably is a conning pirate git or just a lazy one.
