Rings of Medusa - in Austral(as)ia as well?

Was this game originally available in Australia or wasn't it?

Current HOL entry refers to Star Games as US publisher and Starbyte as European publisher.

Both correct.
Hence, Austral(as)ia got factored out completely with these ranges.

It was available here. There are more than a few games that have incorrect entries like that, which were mostly done by the same person in the early stages of HOL.

Early stages? Hm, that was before my time, in 2002.
But there's another trap!
The version available in your area, was it the Starbyte version or the Star Games version?
I would have been *so* certain that with 9 out of 10 games distributed to Austral(as)ia, it was usually the US version that was shipped!
But as things are usually complicated, there would usually be cases as:
A = Europe and Australasia ; B = U.S. only

[edit] oops, forgot you've already edited/corrected the entry.

@Andreas
Possibly before my time too. Anyway, the game originated in Europe, so it was the Starbyte version that was released here. Thanks must go to Belgarath for being quicker than me to make the correction, though
