Black Shadow (GTW64 highlight)

Black Shadow C64 Games That Werent

CRL 1988

Addition by Alex Ross: Sadly it seems there was no conversion whatsoever for the C64 on Black Shadow. CRL head honcho, Clem Chambers wrote to us to explain that although the magazine did indeed say a C64 port was being made, this was often said to magazines in the gap between production of the original and it’s release, giving the company time to find someone to actually do a port.

So not only does it look like Black Shadow was never made in any form on the C64, but it seems many other games we have down as GTW’s, will have only existed as a potential game and no work would ever have been done on them. However, we’ll keep looking until we have a definitive answer, believe it or not we actually find this sort of thing fun.

Creator Speaks: Clem Chambers –

There was no C64 version. Often versions were said to be in production when they werent and you would be looking for a coder to do the port and you would never find them or they failed in the attempt. The lead time between interview and press publication is sufficiently long to port a game so often statements were speculative.

I dont remember ever seeing anything on the C64 for Black Shadow, Id even forgotten the title on the Amiga.
