Do you know what the unreadable text on the original PC version label might have been?

No, but youtube user phreakindee have tons of boxed PC DOS games and should know http://www.youtube.com/user/phreakindee/videos?view=0.
You can read opinions on this forum about ebay users and make decisions.
My english knowledge is based mainly on Amiga games (and later on this forum). You can find here polish users (like me) but they are hidden sometimes.

Have more than 40 games in the big boxes on the Amiga Cd 32 and I plan to collect all of which are issued in these boxes.
Really care about the game originality is why we ask you to help.

Would you mind to scan the box Reters? That way we could have a look if it's the box for an Amiga version and if so for a CD release

It seems to be a legitimate CD32 version of the game by the looks of it. The CD itself looks too 'good' to be a fake actually... The sticker on the otherwise neutral box also looks original. All hints at the game being genuine and not a well made 'fake'. The lack of secondary sources for an actual Amiga CD(32) release is a bit confusing, but I'd say it is a released game for CD32 by the looks of it.

If you own a scanner the box and CD would be very intersting to have as scans for an inclusion of the CD32 entry on HOL

Thank you very much for your opinion.
I think that in the future the knowledge of the game can be useful for someone.
Summarizing the game was released in a big box but probably issued very few copies and therefore its very difficult to availability.
If I can scan it will write to you and add to the HOL.

Thank you all for your help

I am a collector of games in big boxes on the Amiga CD32 and recently bought the game Whizz in a big box.
I have a question:

here is the link to the picture:

Ps: please help as this is very important for me
Ps2: sorry for bad English because I'm still learning

it's not fake, regardless says PC requirements, originally Flair they can be used the PC box to sell this CD32 game because a new BOX requires a new design ie more money invested

Cool!! (that's what I suspected that they had financial problems)
Thanks to everyone for their interest in the subject and help
Now I am sure that I have the original box.
In a few days I'll play and I'll send scans the file for TCD teeth added to HOL.
I plan to collect all games released in big boxes on the Amiga Cd 32.
At the moment have more than 40 games in the big boxes.

Looking for some very rare games:
Brutal Paws of Fury
Base Jumpers(so rare as whizz)
International Open Golf(so rare as whizz)
Humans 3
Pinball Prelude
Speris Legacy
Strip Pot
Star Crusader
Super Stret Fighter II Turbo
Thomas The Tank Engine(so rare as whizz)

If someone could help me find these games I would be grateful

Well, the CD (to me) looks genuine enough with the inner linear mastering notes. The other disc posted earlier (post #8) looks like a CD-R fake - the disc is badly deteriorated too (especially common on budget CD-R discs).

The box - like Sandro said earlier... if this was released on the PC - it's not uncommon to re-label to save on costs of producing an 'Amiga' only box - if the game was released after the demise of Commodore all the reason to do this - I imagine they probably sold the game 'on demand' for the dwindling Amiga user base at the time.... (I'm sure I've seen re-labelling done on other games but I can't think which).

Just as rare as Whizz - if not rarer - is the standalone version of Oscar. Seeing nothing but "Oscar & Diggers" CDs on eBay disheartens me...

Oscar standalone isn't as rare as Int Open Golf or Whizz, infact there was a copy on ebay a couple of months ago. Like Diggers standalone both I'm sure were NTSC only.

As for Whizz it was well known alot of smaller companies reused PC boxes with new labels to sell Amiga games.

Thanks for the clarification.
