Trivia

Accidental covermount release

One UK ST magazine offered a playable demo of this on a coverdisk. Or, at least, that's how it seemed, until tens of thousands of readers loaded it up and found themselves presented with the full game, then retailing at £25!

Version differences

In the Amiga and Atari version (probably in the other computer conversions too) the gore animations from the arcade version when dying in the spike machine trap were removed.
