TriviaThis game was developed on a very early version of DOS, one that apparently allowed spaces in filenames. The game specifically attempts to open the files "agent 1" and "agent 2" when you restore a game.
Newer versions of DOS (and windows shells) see filenames with spaces as multiple arguments, so the file open command in the game would fail. Simply renaming the files and removing the space character actually makes the game work, without having to modify the source code. (which would also be easy enough to do, since it's all written in BASIC and not protected or even compiled.)
