Amazing. I'm going to play this and Moonraker this evening. :D

I just read the recovery story of the Daffy Duck title. Fantastic. Well done to all involved in bringing this pretty much lost title back to us all. Great work. :D

It's been some journey for us, but the full game was recovered in PDS source form and carefully constructed over the past month or so. Full details can be read in the main entry about how the game was found, and of course how we ever got to this stage.
holy ****. this is the one game i wish i could have played after seeing it, reading about it in the magazine, and loving looney tunes back in the day! this is great news 8) :D
thank you for all of your hard work on this, as well as all of the others, obviously, but it's brilliant that things like this can happen so much later on.

what a time to be alive.

Shutdown recovered and released!

Yet another PAL developments game has been fully recovered and released, and its another full game.

Image

Thanks to sterling work by Dean Hickingbottom to recover the game from his C64 disks and recompile it after 26 years, we are proud to present this conversion of a Spectrum/Amstrad game that should have been released across all formats by PAL developments, but for reasons unknown, never got out the door.

Shutdown game

IMO the ad artwork was great stuff. Not sure I want to see the real thing as I am imagining something of a Gauntlet-like horror thing.
