We’re not entirely sure if a C64 conversion was ever in the works, but after the recent revelation that a C64 conversion of another Broderbund classic actually existed, then we are willing to believe that Ancient Art of War had a C64 conversion in production.
Thanks to contributor Luca Bertoldi, a snippet of news regarding the game was given in an issue of Zzap Italia in 1989. No other evidence has surfaced regarding a conversion of this popular war game.
So was anything ever started? Or was the Zzap news snippet a red herring? Considering that an Amstrad CPC edition did surface, then it is very much a possibility!
Do you know any more?
