1984 First Star Software

Platform: Commodore VIC-20

An intriguing lost First Star Software game for the Commodore VIC-20, which did see a previously unreleased Commodore 64 edition saved some years ago.

The game was flagged up on Ward F. Shrake’s VIC 20 list as vapourware, and was reviewed in Compute! magazine in May 1984 along with the TRS-80 Color edition.

There is oddly no mention of a Commodore 64 conversion, so we wonder if there was a printing error in the magazine and if they meant to say Commodore 64 instead.

Hopefully we will find out more in the future and get hold of the developer to confirm whether a VIC-20 edition was ever on the cards. If you know anything more, please let us know.

With thanks to Fabrizio Bartoloni and Ward F. Shrake.
