It might increase the odds since TOSEC has decided that is the name of the game, but it's simply not true. The title screen on the actual game says: Mick & Mack as the Global Gladiators, but that is not the full title, either. Nor is Start Game, Options in the title. If you look at the box art, it simply says Global Gladiators (even on the sticker, it says Global Gladiators - Amiga.) I believe the cover art can be seen at Exotica. Even the Sega Genesis version only says Global Gladiators. Very often, additional text will appear either on the box or title screen that is misleading about the actual game title (forcing me to research it...) and unfortunately, TOSEC is responsible for spreading some real doozies! They have the game Prison listed as Prision, Trump Castle II is listed as Trump Castle 1.3, F-29 Retaliator is listed as Retaliator, Crime Time is listed as It's Time For Crime Time, Beach Volley is listed as Ocean Beach Volley, the three Star Wars games are all listed with Star Wars as the title's prefix (which is absolutely not the case!), etc.

Needless to say, the upcoming EAB database will contain the correct infos on all of this stuff. And before anyone asks, it's coming soon...
