Cobra was of course released on the C64 by Ocean Software in 1986, but Paul Hughes was a bigger fan of Joffa Smith’s awesome (and far better) Spectrum effort.
So much so that just before joining Ocean, Paul started converting the Spectrum title to the C64 just for fun and managed to make very good progress.
Once at Ocean, he showed his proud work to a number of people, including Zach Townsend. Paul realising he may be offending people, quickly put the game away and it gathered dust.
In 2010, GTW helped preserve some disks and found some bits of code remains for the game. There is however more to find we believe, and Paul even may wish to complete it as a tribute to the late Joffa Smith who passed away in 2010.
Sounds overall very interesting, and could be something very good to check out in the future…
Could anything of this be found?…
