Mr Wobbly Leg versus the Invaders from Space

Heya guys,

HOL has this game as being released in 1992; this is incorrect

Yes, the cover disk from Amiga Power was distributed in February 1992 (see here) but...

If you look at the game's "readme" you see this:

Also, if you look at the game file in Directory Opus you see this:

The December 1991 file dates should coincide quite well with the production times (and British practice of printing a later date on their magazines than necessary) of a magazine in 1991-92. So count two months from 18 December 1991 and you have the date when the magazine actually appears in shops = the publication date.

Oh, and given my pet hate of having multiple games on a disk...

I've now created a stand-alone .ADF from the file "ap10_1992_02_d10.adz" that:

a) Displays the "instructions.read_me" file via PPMore.
b) Then loads the game.

...just don't tell the TOSEC guys. They absolutely won't accept any disk that wasn't created "back in the day"

Saying that, I don't think that they even have "ap10_1992_02_d10.adz" (converted to .ADF or not) in their collection either so.
