Mentioned in issue June 1986 of Commodore User, this was a game mentioned as coming soon along with 3 Days in Carpathia.

It was described as a Mafia scenario featuring Rats Maldano and the Morona Brothers and would have been written in The Biro like with 3 Days.

It never surfaced and its believed that the game never got past the planning stage, however it has been found as a Spectrum incarnation in Sinclair User magazine in 1987, with a link to Activision (see scans).   So something was started at least!   But was it started on the C64?

Do you know anything about this game?

  1. Apparently the game got a bit further – at least in its Speccy incarnation:

    The odd thing is that the SU article mentions Activision as a publisher – I’m not aware of any other incident where those two companies teamed up.

      Thanks Jacob, great spot! Ram Jam Corp did have something going with Activision, as Explorer was released by Electric Dreams, which was a sub-label of Activision. So it seems very likely that Electric Dreams would have released it.
