https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... el_id=4101 - Evgeniy Milun, Samara, Russia, coder from Stas Of Keladan.
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... abel_id=92 - Alexander Korolyov, Samara, Russia, coder from Stas Of Keladan.

Just for information: rules of cyrillic names transliteration are different in different countries. In 90-es many authors used transliteration without any rules.
That's why Evgeniy (modern) can be Eugene, Evgeny, Evgenij and so on.
Korolyov could be Koroljov, Korolev.

I'm not sure what to use for Alexanders. Alexander is basically Aleksandr in English.

Jet Ski Simulator isn't an "upgraded" version of Jet Bike Simulator. It's a budget re-release of the CodeMasters Plus "mid-price" release. It's missing all the Coasts courses of the original because it's only on one tape.

Similarly, BMX Simulator 2 is the budget re-release of Professional BMX Simulator from CodeMasters Plus. This version has 10 circuits compared to the 15 on the double tape release.

Some (minor) bugs from the last update.

Super Mario Bros 128K contains five worlds, not three.

The files marked as 'source code' from Time Blaster are not source code, but listing and symbol output files from SjASMPlus.

We are ending the year, so, perhaps we can leave this thread a couple of months and then create a new one.

The original release is listed as being Skyslip Software in 1986/1987
whereas the original release, as listed in the magazines and the inlay on file, was by Bandit Games in 1987. (The game is copyrighted 1986, but the inlay states 1987)

The Skyslip release came later. Magazine references seem to date that as about 1988. Note, Skyslip Software is originally referred to as Leisuretec in the magazine references (and other sources such as the Amstrad reviews) but they share the exact same postal address so are likely to be the same company.
