Allison Kerr, author of 1983's Spectrum Darts should be listed in the team Mr Chip Software rather than Magnetic Fields as Mr Chip wont become Magnetic Fields for another five years.

S.A.V.E seems to be the same person. The signature on the loading screen is almost identical (check Power Pyramids and International Cricket re-release).

Adrian Sumera (Sauron) is not the author of:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=12728 - Ten Fingers
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=12817 - Doom.

Not sure about Pink Pills - Manic Moritz and the Meds. If the game music is taken from the public archives then it's most likely to be the other Sauron. Th other Sauron is Alexander Vasilyev, from Digital Reality group, Velikiy Novgorod, Russia

The entry for Magic Treasure Adventure needs correcting...
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=6632

As referenced in the magazine links to Popular Computing Weekly #17 - 1984/4/26,

Magic Treasure Adventure should have a publication date of at most 1984. It was originally a separate release (not a compilation) at the price £2.95 from T. D. Frost directly. (Not yet calling himself Tartan Software)

There is a further reference to this game in Micro Adventurer issue 11 and various references to the game being Tom's first in two of Samara's Sinclair User adventure columns.
