Snippets taken from the title entry on http://www.gtw64.co.uk

"'Infection' was a game to be released by Virgin Mastertronic back in 1989, but the game never got a release although it was completed on Amiga, Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, PC, C64 and Atari ST.

Although Virgin liked the game and were excited by their budget game prospect, they felt that 'Infection' was a bad choice of name and the idea of an infection themed game in a world which was dominated by the news of AIDS at the time seemed a bad idea. However, the game itself was solid and Virgin saw an opportunity...

In 1990 Virgin struck a deal with 7Up and recycled the Infection game into a new title called 'Spot'. Additionally the game was also licenced to Leland Corporation, whom took the game and brought out an arcade version called 'Ataxx', which was very faithful to the Amiga original. Rights these days to the game are a bit confused as a result. Sadly it meant that the original 'Infection' title was laid to rest.

'Infection' on the C64 is a great game, and certainly a lot more polished than 'Spot'. It features some great presentation, a 4 player mode, level editor and a previously unheard tune by David Whittaker! (A huge bonus for HVSC!) ... Certainly this would have done well had it been released.

It's a shame it never quite made it in its original form, but at least it has now been fully preserved and people can enjoy it at last... only 20 years late I guess! :)"
