Actually, I thought it was Opa-Opa's turn, seeing as he got the previous answer right. I've had plenty of goes at this, so either continue with markopoloman's shot, or wait for Opa-Opa to post something, rather than me posting another image here.

Yes - its by Firebird..............

Although the game was released on the BBC - does that mean it would work on an electron?

I gave up, cheated and Googled. I'm still none the wiser - I know what its called but know nothing about the game :(

Why can't we install emulators at work without getting in trouble :(

No, it would have its own version for the Electron.

Can't say I've ever noticed this one on the BBC, although the GFX do look similar those used in the likes of Sorcery and Firebug.

Bah. No idea. I even tried to Google it and couldn't find a single thing. Why don't you put a screenshot from Buggy Boy or something up so that I can get it right again.
