A very quick entry, where contributor ‘Nicolas’ can recall seeing a C64 conversion of this early Cobrasoft game, which did see release on the Amstrad CPC:

Nothing of the C64 edition can be found online, and with Nicolas being a close friend of a coder in the Babygang group – its possible that a pre-release version of the game was perhaps obtained back in the late 80’s and Nicolas saw that.

Looking on Gamebase, there is a similarly titled game which may be by the very same author of this title called Murder on the Atlantic – its likely part of the same series, as this too was by Cobrasoft:

Cobrasoft was founded by Bertrand Brocard, and the French wikipedia page ( on the house does list the game for the C64.

Interestingly in 2013, there was a crack intro release for the game, but no actual game. So what happened? …

Thanks to Sam64H and Olivier Cappelaere, the game has been found and fully preserved. The game was indeed released and just had a very limited release overall.

Case closed!
