Super Gem'Z

Maybe I'm going crazy, but I'm sure this has cropped up before, but I did a search and couldn't find it (so yeah, I think I am crazy).

Is there any chance of this game being installed? It was developed by Kaiko (the people behind Gem'X) and I understand it was never given an official release (because it was stolen at a show, or something like that).

The only version I can find is the cracked version on PlanetEmu, but I would love to see this installed because (a) I like it and (b) the keyboard reading routine is completely screwed on an A1200 (like in Gem'X, where it doesn't recognise the keys you press 99% of the time) therefore ruining the game to a large extent. Entering your name on the highscore table is a challenge and a half, I can tell you...

I just uploaded to the zone Super Gem'z HD installed.
This should be a WHDLoad Beta version, but I'm not sure.

Happy for being useful.
I know how you felt. I'm going crazy about Lupo Alberto.

Yep, it looks like the slave's a Beta version alright.... what I've played of it, it works perfectly, I wonder why it hasn't had an official release?

Where can i find this WHDLoad beta?
Would like to know, if credits music in this version is fixed.
All TOSEC versions have faulty credits music, one or more samples are corrupted.

CFOU, the slave is your work and it really works, why not release it officially?
It would be the initial slave for GemZ.

There are a lot of beta slaves around for a lot of games. And most of them are working fine and offer more than the official release.
It's such a waste not to release them. A lot of people would check out these released slaves and report possible bugs in mantis. But beta slaves are hidden and will be forgotten.

hol info:
But Never released. Amiga master was stolen from Kaiko at a Cologne computer fair in 1992 and Software 2000 refused to still publish it. There also exists a conversion for the PC; yet even this one has never been published. (Source: Frank Matzke)
so i will released slave soon as for Gotcha last year

So somewhere exists (or one would hope) the original game?! Crazy that the only copy was stolen ... shame as the games looks pretty cool!

I had to ask to developpers about this subject a few years ago (see here) but unfortunately without success ....
there is no fear that the master is definitely lost for communauty

Your slave has the date 19XX Kaiko [A.U.D.I.O.S.]. I know the game never came out, you are 100% right. This is what it says in the title picture from the game
