RemarksDean recalls: "This game was originally entitled 'Mission Icarus' and was demoed on ST/Amiga by Power House at Video Images who I think found a buyer in Psygnosis. A multi-platform conversion deal was struck with Clockwize and ZX, CBM64, PC (and an unwanted Amstrad CPC) versions were completed (the CPC, a port by Dave Bradley from the ZX was excellent!). We had to get the game text translated into the other languages required by the spec."
The levels were created using the specifically written development tool Captain Fizz Level Editor.
Other systemsThis title was also advertised for and/or published on the Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64
An unofficial conversion exists for the Commodore Plus/4
