Trivia

Music

In the Amiga version, a sampled version (a Protracker MOD) of Betty Boo's hit song Doing the Do played on the title screen. On the PC, it is only a simple snippet of digitized sound, whereas on the Amiga it is a full module. What is more interesting, however, is that on the PC, the developers transcribed the music to nearly every single sound device -- Sound Blaster (complete with digital drums), Adlib, Tandy, MT-32, even PC speaker -- and all the transcriptions are fairly competent.

TV

An early version of the game was used on children's TV show Motormouth's call-in game Mighty Mo. Players had to give directions by voice commands which were interpreted into movements, presumably by someone playing the demo as instructed.
