Simon Cookes biography on Wikipedia doesnt pay enough justice to his role within Sam Coupe scene. His unreleased contributions include Populous(incomplete), Bubble Bobble (unattainable license, 1991), Zub (unfinished, but screenshots exist).

Unrelated to Sam Coupe but of great importance is that he worked on a finished cool-looking (at least judging from shots) Prince of Persia conversion to Spectrum that got scrapped due to licence issues, this is a different one from the Russian adaptation made later by another team.

    Cooke released what he had of Zub years ago: the title screen, map, then into ‘gameplay’, which is just the character himself walking left and right and jumping in a completely barren level.
