I don't like touting but I'd like these to go to someone with some knowledge of the field, so if anyone is interested in demos or prototype Spectrum & Amstrad games (including the unreleased US Gold game Mega Twins) please check out my collection I am offering (more to follow):

Here's some info on Mega Twins:

Shame you haven't got the C64 one of course ;-) , but i'd be very interested to see the Spectrum/Amstrad versions preserved.
Did you used to work for one of the Amstrad/Spectrum magazines at the time then?

Fingers crossed they will fall into the hands of someone who's actively preserving these things and putting them online :)

I've tried in vain for several years asking the C64's programmer to dig out the game - without any joy.

Just checked it & it went alright... the auction ended early for some reason.

Disappointed to see the auction ended already, I'd have loved to have gotten the Spectrum Mega Twins to go with the rest of my Spectrum Capcom Collection... Oh well :(

The seller has mentioned on other forums that he's managed to get the disks tested and they're not 100% working, so the auctions have been ended and the disks passed on to people with knowhow in the Amstrad and Spectrum communities to see what can be recovered.
