RemarksRichard recalls: "[It] had 192 game variations. It was 100% machine code, although that was a combination of Z80 machine code, and compiled BASIC to fill the whole 48K. I was 15 at time of release. I was offered a big publisher deal, but naively said no, so distribution was low, this is a very rare game indeed!
The protection was that the game used a special recording duplication method for the tape, making it very hard to copy on normal tape decks, then a 3000 baud turbo loader (as I recall) which loaded a full 48K over itself even."
