Eureka!

Trivia

Competition

Domark had enough confidence in the release to offer an enormous reward of £25,000 to the first person to complete the challenge that came with the game. Each section of the game had a clue associated with it, and once all of these had been solved they could be put together to reveal a hidden code and a telephone number. The prize was won in 1985 by fifteen-year old Matthew Woodley. Matthew had to call the telephone number three times before finally finding the courage to leave a message on the answering machine at the other end. No doubt he was very glad he did when he received his check.

Version differences

This is perhaps the only game in which the C64 disk version is cut down from the cassette one. As the whole game could not fit on a single disk, 2 of the action sections were omitted from the disk.
