Our next title into the archives is a a scrolling platformer by the name of Death Trap, which was produced by Anco in 1991 and released on the the Amiga and ST. The game was fairly well recieved and was fun enough.
One review in C&VG suggests that a C64 version could well be coming soon (see scans), but by this point Anco weren’t doing a huge amount with the C64 – so could they have really had plans to convert this title across?… Maybe. The game could well have been Anco’s final title planned for the C64 before moving fully across to the 16-bit platforms.
However, apart from the brief mention in C&VG, we have no other information to confirm that something was under way.
Do you know any more about it?
