Splat (1983)

The reviews from 1991 and 1992 should be moved to the Sam Coupe version.

Artura (1989)

All reviews are from November or December 1988, so the year of release should be 1988.

From a comment here: https://zxart.ee/eng/software/game/arca ... per-duel4/

Nav and Negus are mispellings of MAV and Megus.
I'm assuming that Megus here and here are different people. Could anyone please confirm?

From what this article seems to say, this should be the page for Megus. Roman Petrov is not Megus, but someone who shares the same name as him. Also, they are apparently both from Russia (rather than Ukraine).

Edit: if this is the case, the credit for Chopper Duel should be changed to refer to Megus. Additionally, Roman Petrov (from Saint Petersburg, according to the wiki) who wrote Arcade Voleyball may be a different person from the other two.

This Home Computer Weekly 24/1/84 review on the Pitfall 2 page isn't for Pitfall 2, but a uMIA text adventure called Pitfall by Infinite Software.

Original publisher should be Micro Gold as mentioned here, and the price was £2.75.

The Firebird release was in October 1984 and was £2.50.
