The Fall Guy

currently has a year of release of 1985, but it is reviewed in Crash January 1985 and Your Computer January 1985 (both published in 1984)

Airwolf

currently has a year of release of 1984, but is not finished in the preview in Crash January 1985 . It doesn't get a Crash review until February 1985, and the other magazine reviews are even later.

So, The Fall Guy year should be 1984 and Airwolf should be 1985.

Realm of Impossibility

Although an advert appeared in Crash in July 1985, it wasn't released until 1986. Reviews are from March and April 1986, and one specifically says "What are Ariolasoft doing releasing a game like this in 1986?".

Rampage

Year of release should be 1987, not 1988. The Crash preview gives a date of November 1987, and @Bizzley's book also confirms that the game went for mastering before Christmas (page 29-32).

Missing credits...

Terrormolinos
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=7088

The inlay credits the following contributions... (only Peter Jones and Trevor Lever are currently credited in the DB entry)
Peter Jones & Trevor Lever - Game concept and storyline
Mike Robinson - Graphics and cover illustration
Roger Taylor & James Byrne - Programming

Roger Taylor --> https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... l_id=12546
Mike Robinson --> https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... el_id=9866


Dodgy Geezers
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=6189

Again only Peter Jones and Trevor Lever are credited here. The inlay gives the additional credits (for the game itself)...

Storyline developed on "The Quill" by Lever/Jones

Reporogrammed by Ashminster Computing Ltd***

Graphic ideas by Valerie Saunders
Graphic design by Consult Computing Systems

***Ashminster Computing Ltd was run by Roger Taylor

(As an aside, the role of the Quill in the finished games is uncertain. Both games were prototyped/written using the Quill. but the final games have been "reprogrammed".)
