Not to be confused with the Andromedia game of the same name, although the cockpit does look very familiar. Quark IX is a confusing title, as it seems to suggest it was intended for release by Commodore themselves back in 1983 – but the game looks to be incomplete and very buggy.
Interestingly it seems it was hacked and released in 1984 by Happy Software and renamed to QX-9 (http://www.gamebase64.com/game.php?id=6140&d=18&h=0), but what of this original game?
Was it ever released properly? Can you help us confirm?
