There's a reference to Delphine's earlier game Future Wars
in Operation Stealth
. At the beginning of the game in the airport you have to get a newspaper from a newspaper machine similar to the way you had to get one from a newspaper machine in the future subway in Future Wars
. The game displays a message when you do this and says "Don't even think about being in another century."
Delphine published a special 1990 Christmas box of Operation Stealth
. Apart from the normal contents, it included an audio CD with the original music from the game.
There are three different versions of this game:
It was originally released in Europe as an EGA version under the name of Operation Stealth
A few months later, Delphine released a VGA-only follow-up.
For the US market, Interplay got its hands on the official James Bond
license and decided to spice up the game with the famous agent's name. Thus, the game (VGA version) was released as James Bond: The Stealth Affair
. Apart from a few name changes (Glames to Bond, obviously, but also the chief of the research department becomes Q) there were no differences.
