Nope, but tell me more.

(I'll give you another clue: it's an 8-bit platform)

Maybe you can keep giving clues until either we get it or you've basically spelt it out for us.

I have to say, I'm curious to see what this mystery platform is.

The platform sounds like it was designed for racing games. :wink:

16-bit I think, same processor as the Amiga and ST IIRC.

This one's of roughly similar vintage, but it's an 8-bit machine.

No, but it has something in common with the Amstrad.

(Can someone please replace the :P smiley? It's so bad I'm ashamed to use it.)

More clues: it's a British platform.

I think that the format is SAM Coupe, so I'm going to guess for Golden Sword of Bhakhor.

Right platform! :)


Wrong game. :(


AFAIK, the game was only ever released for the SAM.

Legend of Eshan...

Is a SAM emulator available, or can some of the ZX ones do it? Looks interesting as Doomdarks revenge is my most played speccy game.


Will post one later, assuming its correct
