Not much is known about this game at present, apart from that it was by Realtime Software. This was for the Commodore 64 version only, and other 8-bit versions were to follow at a later date.

There was never a review of the game or anything else shown apart from adverts it seems. So did the company collapse before the game could be released, or was it just cancelled for other reasons?

Thanks to Pete Weighill, we learn what the game was going to be like.

The game was not a shoot-em-up like their 3D Starstrike releases, but was a new arcade adventure that starred the legendary hero Jason (as in Jason and the Argonauts) in search of the Golden Fleece.

The game would have contained around 30 screens of highly detailed graphics along with some equally detailed game play. The game was due for release just after the Christmas period for £7.95, but never quite made it.

The game is believed to be close to completion due to the adverts offering the ability to purchase a copy. Maybe you tried to order it and had a letter back saying it had been cancelled? Let us know if you did.
