Indeed and it looks very good.

The guy who posted the vids still seems to be active on there, hopefully he can be contacted and convinced to share if it can't be found otherwise.

It runs on a 512K Amiga? Very impressive indeed.

Here's hoping this can be released...

From the description and videos on youtube it seems it was 100% completed, just never released.

Just got a mail from Murtadha. He was very pleased, but he doesn't have the game. So Murtadha gave me the address of his old friend Rabah, he could still have the disk images.

Thanks for taking the lead Retro
I really hope you can manage to convince Rabah to share his disks if he still has the game.

Hmmm... Very interesting game idea indeed! To clear a level you have to play with two characters. It reminds somewhat Lost Vikings except there was three characters to play.

I think there is lack of games that two players would have to play together like we see in the video. For example to get a floating thingie you must jump to reach it on the top of other player. Sweet!

Also when palying with girlfriend it's fun to know that a pleasure could be your reward when you put your body on the top of the other!

Hail for the whole team behind that game. Extreme circumstances, and still they are creating somewhat special. Respect.
