Comments:
Simon recalls: "Ah one of the most infamous pieces of cover art - Quite apart from it being plain terrible (someone wrote at the time it should have been called "Leg end of the Amazon Women") it misrepresented the game in the most appalling way. I had no control over that and absolutely hated it. Whatever you may think of this game I was actually quite proud of what I managed to pull off technically here. There is actually a lot going on. The characters are build up from sets of legs, arms and a weapon that are shared, the leg in the back being drawn one pixel higher and at a different stage of the animation than the one in the front. A torso and Head that was unique to the player character and the amazons. This was to save memory. I was very tight on memory in general on this one. I even hid some data in the sky that cannot be seen because the pixel and background colours are the same."
