Hmm reading the site it's clear he was a programmer in several Amiga games:

Quote:
Qwak for the Amiga and CD32 computers. I was the sole designer and programmer. I was also responsible for some artwork in the game. I developed the game to 70% completion before signing up with Team17. Qwak received top reviews and was highly regarded for it's addictive game-play.

Cosmic = Jamie Woodhouse

I think I'm correct in saying that all of the games written by Jamie are his copyright and property, Team 17 and Psygnosis simply published.

Hi There,

As much as possible it is, there's a few modifications, due to differences in Amiga and GBA hardware (smalled screen size etc.), also, there's no multiplayer (which isn't ideal I know).

No problem at all. Shipping (world wide) is FREE. Bargain!!

Well I'll definitely be purchasing a copy. 12 is more than reasonable as I loved the Amiga game.

If only games like this were the norm and modern games were the 'underground' stuff. Might convince me to start buying games again
