Thanks for your work recovering MIA from Portugal, as your neighbour I have been always interested in knowing the Spectrum stuff that was produced in there. I even have a custom cassette copy of City Connection :)

Congratulations on the recovery !
I know this feeling when you find a game that you were hunting for years and it's a great feeling ;)

The game is certainly interesting, it has a lots of data, multiload parts, pictures, animations and so on.But for me, from my 5 minutes of experience, it also has a dose of weirdness. So what's the game goal?

As I understand you have to save the world from nuclear destruction. But in the actual game you first you click through several animations and then you end playing some clone of Arkanoid. This is how you save the world? ;)

Thanks Ivan and Ralf :)

Ralf: yes, it´s like a very weird clone of Arkanoid. Good graphics, but gameplay is very weird... :shock:

The goal is to hit with the ball on the coloured "n" to end the level. If you feel you´re going to loose a life, just hit fire, and now it´s a question of luck. If you hit X, loose a life, V, wina a life, B, earn some points... Very weird indeed. And not very good, but graphics are very nice... :?
