Trivia

Releases

Spanish company Dinamic Software originally created the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad, PC and MSX versions. When the game got distributed in the UK by Imagine, Imagine themselves developed versions for the C64, the Atari ST and the Amiga to maximize the profits.

Those systems were not popular in Spain at the time, which explains why Dinamic didn't bother to port the game for them. Eventually, though, most Spanish companies, Dinamic included, ended up programing for them.

Structure

Like many Spanish games of the same period, the game is divided into two independent parts, with the second password protected. This would become a trademark of Dinamic, but other companies like Opera and Topo also adopted it. In tape versions, each part would fit into a side of the tape and could be loaded separately.

Zach Townsend

The code of part 2 of the C64 version contains a lengthy string of ramblings from programmer Zach Townsend. He makes a (surely forlorn) plea to find a girlfriend, lists his favourite music of the time (including Michael Jackson and Simple Minds), complains that Delta and Nemesis are rubbish, and mockingly compares the singing voice of Sam Fox to the C64 loading noise.
