Iron Maiden is another game which was originally planned by EBES when the C64 was dying out commercially around 1994 time. The game was mentioned in a note file from around 1995 where Russ talks about various games which EBES planned to do if people would support them.
At present we are not quite sure what the game would have been about, obviously it would have had the guys from Iron Maiden in it – but we’re not sure what type of actual game it would have been. Most likely it would have been a platforming game, but then it could have been a management sim. We need more details from Russ Michaels to see what this game was really about.
It is very likely that the game never actually got started, so we may well be looking at vapourware – but it will be worth finding out to close the case on this one. There would have likely been legal issues too using the band’s name.
Do you know any more?
