Just realised that the game is already online as Towering Inferno, so just need to move infos from Inferno to Towering Inferno, as it seems some are missing :)
Do you mean Inferno and Towering Inferno are exactly the same game?

Inlay contains additional credits not mentioned in the archive:

"Production team - Graham Asher, Richard Edwards, Charles Goodwin,
James Learmont, Jan Ostler, Andrew Owen, John Peel."

Note: we do not have a scan of the instructions in the archive, but there is one here:

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source= ... 6JXO9MmyRu

Could this be added to the archive?

I suppose RUN [IT] was founded and owned by Aquarius Edizioni. Correct?

Right now ZXDB says the opposite (just like Martijn's WoS).

The Fourth Protocol

This was also released for MS-DOS. It isn't on Abandonia that I can see (as the PC/DOS games currently in ZXDB are) but it's available at archive.org, I don't know if that's an alternative URL worth using?



A Guide to Playing the Fourth Protocol

This has been given an 'also known as' entry of "The Fourth Protocol: Playing the Game", however looking at a scan of the book https://www.mocagh.org/miscgame/4thprot ... ntbook.pdf its name does seem to be "The Fourth Protocol: Playing the Game" -- I can't see any reference to its name being "A Guide to Playing the Fourth Protocol" anywhere.

Incidentally, the book mentions an Apple II conversion of the game, which according to an article in Retro Gamer 61 was finished and released; however I can't find any trace of it online. So I don't know if it's worth adding Apple II to the list of other platforms or not?

A Guide to Playing the Fourth Protocol
Can't edit my post to add these but the following magazine references currently listed for the game apply to the guidebook -- since they also relate to the game they probably want to be listed for both:

https://archive.org/stream/computer-vid ... 7/mode/1up
https://archive.org/stream/Computer_Gam ... 6/mode/1up
https://archive.org/stream/popular-comp ... 0/mode/1up
https://archive.org/stream/sinclair-use ... 9/mode/1up (This one is already listed in the book's ZXDB entry)

This french game should be called Le Manoir du Dr Genius instead of just Dr Genius:

@rogerjowett has let me know that Delta Wing from creative sparks includes fuller box (
G1-AY-3-8912) support.

It's listed in the Spanish instructions:
