If you look at the games released for the Commodore 64, you’ll notice that we got a conversion of the BBC Micro classic, Repton… or actually, Repton 3 to be precise.
You see, the first two games never actually got a conversion on the C64 for reasons currently unknown, though a recent mini-interview with Richard Kay suggested that he had done a conversion of the first game which didn’t get a release by Superior Software.
Now Richard did the conversion of the 3rd game that was released, so the speculation could be that Richard had done an earlier edition/conversion which wasn’t quite up to scratch. The 3rd game could have been a complete rewrite that was good enough.
Still very much early days and we are hoping to get hold of Richard to get his side of the story and possibly see if anything ever survived of the conversion.
