Considering nearly all the major Amiga magazines reviewed this, it's a bit surprising to find it was unreleased, and certainly no rare playable copy of it has leaked out to the scene/web or anything.


Anyone managed to learn/discover any background info on this, what happened etc?

I was looking forward to this game. Although I think it was made in AMOS, or at least based on a game that was, it still would have been fun to play, and had a heap of characters to choose from.

Written by someone in Thalion (UK) about a year after Thalion (Germany) had closed and gone to BlueByte.

Also known as "Kwok's Game".

It was supposed to be a CD32 game but only a disk based A1200 demo exists.

Previewed in almost all the magazines in the UK.

Supposedly REVIEWED in lots of magazines.

Amiga Format issue 73 July 95 Page 66 70%
Amiga Power issue 51 July 95 Page 50 60%
CU Amiga July 95 Page 53 85%
The One July 95 Page 40 85%
C&VG issue 164 July 95 Page ?? 85%

The demo was given away on a cover disk of "The One" April 1995.

I believe that it was intended to be a full price version of the PD beat-'em-up Madfighters. I started to track down the author but didn't get far.

I think that is true. The authors name is down as "Kwok Man" and someone of the same name is named as the author of Mad Fighters II AGA

Mad Fighters II is very damn playable!,the game colors are weird but well drawn.A great game to be noncommercial.
