Trivia

Development

Hidden Treasures never received any money from the US release, probably due to Epyx declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Konix multi-system

The game was also under development for the unreleased Konix Multisystem console. Some screenshots survive, and show something of similar visual quality to the ST and Amiga versions.
