Re: Little bugs in the database

Argus Press acquired several games publishers in the 80s, including Bug-Byte. I wasn't aware that A&F was one of them, but the Core inlay is strong evidence that it was. If so, I think we should delete Argus Press and just use the subsidiary labels. The alternatives are just to use the parent label ...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

I've never played the game. From a quick look at the instructions, it seems you are a warrior granted magical powers. I suppose that is what the cover represents.

BTW I expect the swordsman figure is copied from somewhere, too. It looks familiar.

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

It's a pretty ironic choice of image, given the title!

Re: Atic-Atac Isometric Version

@redballoon, have you considered using the unused Knight Lore graphics Tim Stamper put on Twitter, eg:

Or are you sticking strictly to the Atic Atac designs?

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: vote

This is a tricky one. There are a lot of very good games in the list, and you could spend ages agonising over the vote. If any of you are finding it difficult to decide, my advice would be just to go on the shininess of the inlay.
