Trivia

1001 Video Games

Mega lo Mania appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Cancelled sequels

Plans were made for a 'data disk' with new missions for April/May 1992, and a sequel, Mega lo Mania 2 at end of 1992. Subsequently, neither releases never appeared.

Competition

Amiga Format in January 1992 ran a competition whereby two lucky winners could have their face and voices digitized as villains in forthcoming "Mega-lo-Mania" data disks. Other prizes were a copy of the game, a T-shirt or mug. In humorous Amiga Format-style entry forms were addressed to 'Dressing Room Mirrorsoft Compo'.

Cut content

The original recordings for the game had Madcap saying, "No way, shithead!". This was trimmed for the game to just, "No way!", although the original files were still stored on the disks.
