Backroom Software

Status: Preview, Findability: 3/5

Another GTW game from the 80’s, created by a company who call themselves ‘Backroom Software’, so obviously this wasn’t created in house. We believe that this game was actually created by Steve Dunn, who also did the Blast game in the archive.

Bits of the score panel for instance you can actually find in the released Zone Z by Starlight Software, which also seems to be a completed version of Blast.

What we have here though, is a mix and match of sprites from other games, including the main sprite from Antiriad. The rest of the game seems to be its own though, and simply involves you flying around and shooting creatures while avoiding the lazer beams.

The preview is very glitchy, and unpolished. It’s not quite known if this was going to be offered to companies to publish or if it was just a technical demo. Unfortunately Steve could not recall anything about the game at all, so we believe it was just done as a play around and didn’t interest enough to proceed further.

Case closed!
