Trivia

Music

The Betty Boo song is also in the PC version, but as a simple snippet of digitized sound on the PC, whereas on the Amiga it is a full module. The PC version 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 accurate.

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.
