Rock-Slide [Solved]

Post by exoscoriae »

I am currently seeking a game called Rock-Slide. A user who frequents these forums, Frenkel, posted screen shots of the game to mobygames.

Here is a link to it:
http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/rock-slide

All the googling I have tried has led me no-where on this one. ANy assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This may have been on a disk magazine publication,1989 is after the end of UpTime:s existence, maybe Softdisk published it for Viking Technologies?

Cool looking game. It's amazing how a black and white image can look so promising and crisp. If you find it on your own, be sure to let us know!

Digging into that cd.textfiles.com reference, it looks like a different Amiga game with the same name. DMS files on the Cd, Cd titled "Hottest 4- Many Public Domain Amiga Programs (October 1994)" and some other reference to a game of this name but different screenshots in Amiga game lists.

Too bad! Very nice lead.
