1996 Frontier Software

Platforms: Atari ST and Commodore Amiga

Another puzzler that was due for release on both the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST platforms, and this time a late release for back in 1996 when the platforms were practically gone commercially.

The game was a clone of the classic Puzzle Bobble with 100 levels, and featuring a similar graphic style to Gem-X that was released by Demonware some years before. It looked pretty decent and was said to be not that far away from completion.

Previewed in magazines such as Amiga Dream, ST Format and ST Magazine – as with many games that feature on GTW, it just disappeared without a trace. Certainly there is nothing preserved of the game at this stage online, so if it did see release – then it was perhaps in very limited numbers.

Do you know anything more about it and can it be found and preserved?

With thanks to Grzegorz Antosiewicz for the heads up and for the scans.
