Orel Hershiser’s Strike Zone

Virgin Mastertronic

Status: No Download, Findability: 1/5

A new Melbourne House title (whilst under the Virgin Mastertronic ownership) was due on the C64 in the shape of Orel Hershiser’s Strike Zone, a pretty cool baseball game which seems to have only been due for release in the US.

The game was advertised in a sales catalogue as coming soon, but only got a release on PC.

You may think that it was possibly a mistake in the catalogue, but after a bit of searching – we found an advertisement poster for sale which lists the C64 version, and which you can see in the gallery.

So was the game being produced in the US for the US Market, or was it being done in the UK with the aim of marketing under a different name?

Early days – but yet another game in the GTW64 archives to try and find out more about.
