Trivia

The game is an unofficial adaptation of the film Ladyhawke, although the man here turns into a fish (!). Such strategies were not unusual in Spanish games of the era, the game El Misterio del Nilo from Zigurat incurs in a similar occurrence. It uses the plot from the movie Jewel of the Nile, and the faces of the characters in the loading screen were altered in international versions, as they resembled too much the faces of the actors in the film.
