Can we make this the official spectrumcomputing "REVIEWED" tag?

There's a new bug though (in ZXDB) regarding Line. These two entries need merging:

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=35092
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=34339
Erm, has the above merge gone wrong? When I look up the ZXDB entry for Line now I get a load of broken links (no images) and the emulator links don't work.

I'm pretty sure it will come good when @PeterJ installs the update at SC. There's just been a new ZXDB update and the screenshots have probably been changed at source, but the DB doesn't match them yet.

This Pete Carter is also credited on Incentive's Moon Cresta and should have the roles "Load Screen" and "Inlay/Poster Art" according to the back of the inlay.


This is almost certainly the same person as Peter Carter who is credited with the artwork for Incentive's Confuzion.
