You see the same Disk in the Trple Action 2.
Prism Leisure used it for many Re-Releases.

Ah, that would make sense. I'll remove it from the game entry until there's actual proof for a budget release. Thank you

For Conquestador/Spoils Of War I'm trying to find info about the Internecine and Top Shots releases. I can't find any other mention of them publishing the game other than on HOL.

Hmm, for the PC and only as an offer. Couldn't find any other mention of a data disk for the game.

But that's for the game Conquestadoe Those offer lists of games by merchants aren't very reliable. Lots of announced games/ports were listed but never showed up. Like with reviews that indicate that a game is supposed to be ported it's not 'solid' enough that there was actually more than just the intention of that happening.

This time for something on MobyGames: https://www.mobygames.com/game/67831/ubek/covers/

The 'Other Cardboard' scans look like a box to me, but maybe somebody has seen the game and can tell me what those two scans are.

It seems you're right.
The packaging is a simple cardboard envelope containing three floppy disks and a short leaflet.

Today a box: https://amiga.abime.net/games/view/c...hallenge#scans

The second box. Since I'm not a native speaker it would be great if somebody could confirm that the language is Portuguese

Trying to figure out if Arazog's Tomb was actually released for the Apple Macintosh. There's an ad for the game:


and there was a preview in Computer Gaming World Issue 33: https://archive.org/details/Computer...ge/n3/mode/2up

I can't find that version anywhere. The only version that is available seems to be the Amiga version.

The first link is interesting. When you switch to English it's clear they have a copy, but an actual image of it isn't available. Might send them an email.

Top of the page:
"An editor is fairly certain this game don't really exist."
