Issue 49 of Your Sinclair featured a news item on Virgin Mastertronic’s plans. Included in them was a license of the Marvel Comics’ character the Silver Surfer. All the other titles listed made it onto the C64, but very little is known about this particular comic book license.
Was it ever started? …. or did it possibly become vapourware along with the Spectrum version?
The game did eventually surface on the NES, and was developed by Software Creations … so hopefully some of the ex-Software Creations guys will know more. Maybe there is a Tim/Geoff Follin tune to be found here?
Do you know any more?

Just forwarded over the Comics feature from an Amstrad CPC mag, Silver Surfer (along with X-Men, Halo Jones etc) mentioned, supposed to be done by Vigin Mastertronic’s USA branch.
Cheers Ross, adding now :)
The NES version looked and sounded like a C64 game, I wonder if they just ended up finishing the game on the NES?
You could be right, though sadly there seems to be no evidence forthcoming at the moment that they had a C64 version started. We’ll see though!
