Trivia

The first four games were written by the same couple - husband and wife! Part 5 was released by Activision but lacked that certain "originality" that was in the first three. Sargon 4 was a great game but was released by a really bad company called Spinnaker - they did nothing to promote this game and that was a REAL SHAME. The gameplay was good, but the manual and box were terrible.
