The Bobby Yazz Show

Destiny

Status: No Download, Findability: 2/5

Bobby Yazz is a computerised game show, featuring various games to win prizes and the normal quiz routine you got with many computer based game shows. The fun novel approach was appealing to many, and the game received good reviews on the spectrum platform, to which it was eventually released on a covertape, and never at full price.

The Commodore 64 version was advertised, but never sadly surfaced anywhere, not even on a covertape. Therefore its unknown just how complete the C64 conversion was, and with no credits, it will be hard to find out exactly what happened.

What with the problems with Destiny/Big Apple software, it seems as if they may have gone under just before releasing Bobby Yazz.   Although reviewed, Destiny (the other name for Big Apple) went under just before the game could be released.  The Spectrum version surfaced thanks to going on the Crash Megatape.  The C64 version was not so lucky.

Thanks to Strident, who was speaking with Destiny’s Francis Lee, we have been kindly passed on photos of the box packaging for the Commodore 64 version, which is (c) Francis Lee (https://talesofmidnight.com/).

It is hoped that we will find out soon what exactly happened to the conversion. Was it by the same development team as Yeti?
