The date of release for Crystal of Chantie should be 1985 not 1987.
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=6117

Although the 1987 date matches the associated magazine review, it was advertised multiple times in magazine classified sections from 1985 onwards. (Some of which are already linked to the game's page).

e.g. Sinclair User, July 1985 (second entry down)
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 9&page=130

Furthermore, the author's own (archived) site says he wrote it prior to the other Pelagon Software titles.
https://web.archive.org/web/20141104060 ... /page3.htm

Presumably the 1987 on the loading screen corresponds with a specific re-release of the game, probably the edition that was reviewed in Your Sinclair.

[Edit: I've emailed the author to ask if there was an earlier edition of Chantie, perhaps programmed in a similar system to his other two games, before he made a version with GAC... That seems fairly likely to me and would explain the two dates.]

Returning to the Crystal of Chantie (mentioned above)
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=6117

The last download file in the list, as indicated below...

...seems not to be The Crystal of Chantie.

It seems to be The Crystal Cavern...
