Possibly a little too late in the C64’s life, but we have had reports
from our very own Andrew Fisher that Barcelona ’92 was infact in production on the C64 as well as the Amiga for US Gold.
Who were the candidates behind this conversion?…. Software Creations. Strangely we have never heard this game mentioned before and would have never thought a C64 version was on the cards. As far as we know there has never been any publicity in magazines talking of a C64 version.
Andrew will no doubt shed more light soon on the information of the production. We don’t know how far it got or who at Creations was working on it. It was a conversion of the amiga game, but apparently much delayed…. maybe too delayed into the C64’s later life?
Simon Hadlington, an ex-games tester and producer at US Gold recently tells GTW that no C64 version was ever started… so it seems sadly that this was the case. Simon was the producer for this particular game.
So sadly our search comes to a premature end… No C64 conversion to be found, and another case to close…
Case closed …
