RemarksThe game was advertised quite extensively in 1985 by Durell and was completed but not considered good enough for release. An article in issue 25 of Crash remarked: "although halfway through the project there was a moment when it looked like the game might make a commercial release, it didn't come up to scratch".
Clive Townsend, however, did use some of the routines from this game in the programming of Saboteur.
The available development version was recovered in 2007.
Other systemsThis title was also advertised for and/or published on the Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro and Commodore 64
