Fantastic Voyage


Status: Preview, Findability: 2/5

Also known as: Die Phantastische Reise

Where did this game come from? It’s been around for about 30 years now, but it remained something of a mystery.

This seemed to be an unofficial home conversion based on the 60’s film Fantastic Voyage. This German language game comes with a full introduction sequence, where you get shrunk down into a small microscopic size and have to fly through the human body, past blood cells.

We think this is all there is to the game at this stage, but no doubt there would have been different types of levels as you progressed. For a game shaping up well like this, why was it abandoned? Hopefully Torsten will confirm details some day.

However, it was by pure chance that when speaking to coder Ritchie Brannan about another Fantastic Voyage game, that he recognized the graphics as being from his very own development that came about a year later.

It seems that this very game was intended for release by Ariolasoft, but for reasons unknown was dropped and Ritchie was given the project. He had no knowledge of this version at all.

It’s early days, but some decent leads at last on this title.
