Wanted: The Great Escape Cassette

Post by SpaceFlightOrange » Tue Aug 20, 2019 11:51 am

I'm desperate for an original copy of this. It was my favourite game on the Spectrum as a kid (not that i owned a spectrum, i used to play it on my cousin's)

Ideally and original Ocean release but I'll take any (as long as it works)

Thanks

There are at least three in eBay at the moment but they don't look to have been tested.

I suppose you are not interested in the Steam game. I had it on amstrad a tape ages ago...

I am seeing one from italy on Ebay for 24 euros.

I did actually buy that! Although even at the bargain price of 85p it was very disappointing. The original spectrum version is much better. I had no idea it came out on Amstrad.
Apologies for taking so long to reply. I missed your post. Looks like I've missed these. I'll keep watching on eBay. I've missed out on a couple (outbid) in the last weeks. though my friend got a copy for buttons via a compilation pack.

Amstrad version is very close to Spectrum. I did ask Piko Interactive if they could put in other versions as well. They told me to go to Antstream, very disappointing.

You might also want to consider The Magnificent Compilation which has some excellent games, Cobra, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Wizball, Head Over Heels, Arkanoid, Yie Ar Kung Fu and Short Circuit - as well as The Great Escape. You can usually pick it up fairly cheap.
