I did a bit of searching ... found some info about the game:

It seems as though it was an Apple2 game ... most info I found was concerning the Apple2, but also a C64 version definitely exists (see below; a version for the Amiga also possibly exists?) It was apparently made by "Jacaranda Software".

The only downloadable version I could find was the C64 version, which I think is the one you're looking for. Go to:

http://www.gamebase64.com/game.php?id=12783&d=18&h=0

And click the link near the bottom there (it says "Sabid UK") to download ... note that this is a Commodore 64 ROM file ... so to play it you need a C64 emulator. Two popular free ones seem to be:

http://www.ccs64.com/

and

There's a couple more to choose from at Zophar:

Hope this helps Wink This one really tested my 'net searching ability hehe. Cool

That's not to say there were not other versions though.

Hi!,

Thank you to whoever posted the C64 version.

Does anyone have a BBC micro version? This is the version I played at school and I wouldnt mind tracking it down for nostalgias sake.

Thanks,
Tom
