DescriptionLost disks of SAM is a SAM Coupé conversion of the ZX Spectrum game Lost Tapes of Albion.
The main character Moebius is a "renowned collector of intergalactic tat." After having collected lost Speccy tapes in the last game, Moebius realises that "no self-respecting tat-collector could be complete without a set of SAM Coupé games that never were released" and sets out on a dangerous platform adventure.
In a single screen platform game like they were done in the arcades in the early eighties, you control Moebius as he runs between the eight floors of each of the twelve levels, filled with floppy disks and dangerous nasties of four kinds. The floors are connected to the left and right, so that running off-screen to the right puts you on the left of the platform below, or on the top platform if you happen to be on the bottom floor. Most of the time, though, it is better to use the teleport platforms interspersed throughot the floors, where you push up or down to move to the platform below or above. This is needed in order to avoid the nasties patrolling each floor, ranging from the mindless Chomper to the robotic Homer which turns your way whenever you're on the same platform, or the mindless but very speedy Pucky, which seems to be modeled on the Coupé mascot SAM the Robot.
Between levels are short sequences showing the recovered disk and Moebius changing into a new suit for the next level. The game has also been remade for the Amiga as Moebius Goatlizard.
