I've actually had this game for over a year, but the very reason for releasing it now is that GB64 was released, with the game added.

I didn't realize that there was a picture of the tape inside the zip file... in which case this original couldn't be from the Ozisoft release. The Ozisoft release had a black tape with the Ozisoft logo on it. At least, that's the one I dumped for GBv11.

If the original for this was sourced from GB64 v11 originals, then thank me for the dump. I bust myself sourcing new missing wares for the project. This was an Ozisoft tape release. If you're looking for more "firsts", then look for an original tape dump of "MacMan", and if you want the world record of longest-time-between-original-release-and-first-crack, then try making a disk version of "Wordrace", also a new dump in GB64. ;)

Nice to see what a Gamebase64 update brings up.

@Uncle K: Thanks for the info. That's similar to Rushware, an important distributor of software in West-Germany in the 80s and 90s, who are hardly known by others. (unlike OziSoft they never released any own-developed software at all)

This game contains very sweet speedcode for updating the color RAM, already in 1985 :)

@Rough & Hedning: Ozisoft were huge in Australia during the mid to late 80's and were probably the most notable C64 games distributor/publisher of that time. They were bought out by Sega in the early 90's, and then again sold off to Infogrames/Atari in the 2000's.

As for the release, interesting find, great job once again GP!

You're probably right too about them being still small in 1985.

Rough: You are right. But in -85 they were not that big, if I understand it correct. In 1990 they were biggest in .au , but it seems to be linked to Sega, and not Commodore. Well. Interesting read. Thanx.

@Hedning: OziSoft wasn't a small company, but one of the Australian main importers of software back in the days.

Great to see this one in English! (though I can read Dutch).
Any change of Nautilus existing in English? Also from Radarsoft.

Such a badass game, these sort of weird games were only released in the mid 80's. ;)

Hedning is right, there were just Dutch versions around and this one appeared just recently. Well done guys!

The german and dutch versions were available in Europe back in 85, and cracked: De Grotten van Oberon [dutch] by ABC for example, and CCS. The english version was released (licensed) on tape by the small australian company OziSoft, which could explain why is wasn't that spread. I have seen a disk version of it too though.

That's the strange thing. It was released in english back in 85, but no crack of it could be found, so we did this to please the demanding crowd. ;)
