Originally mentioned in CVG as a new game being produced on the Spectrum and C64, Dr Blitzen and the Islands of Arcanum was on its way. This is better known as Dynamite Dan II, and was eventually released on the Spectrum, but sadly not the C64 for
reasons currently unknown.
Dynamite Dan was released on the C64, which begs the question why the C64 version was not done. It seems there was most likely problems with the development of the C64 version, and Mirrorsoft had no choice but to cancel the game.
Of course we don’t know just yet, so we need to do a lot more research. It is possible the game would have been coded by the same people who did the first game. Of course, this needs to be confirmed.
For a game which I feel could have been easily converted to the C64, i’m very interested to find out what happened
to our C64 version.
Does anyone out there know what happened?…. Let us know! :-)
