A very quick entry which we will properly flesh out over time. But this was a Spanish arcade action game which was based on a cartoon of some kind. The game was split across 4 areas, including a Disco, Beach, Ship and an Acid House.
It was released on the Spectrum, Amstrad and MSX – but the C64 version (although listed) never surfaced. More details (in Spanish) can be found here: http://computeremuzone.com/
We are not quite sure why the C64 version never surfaced in the end, but hopefully will find out very soon! One thing we believe is that the game had ported graphics from the Spectrum.
Thanks to MT153, it seems the game was actually printed in a magazine as both BASIC and Machine code. We attach the magazine here, but maybe someone would fancy having a go and seeing if this is indeed the full game? It could be a nice title to recover!
In the magazine “Commodore World” (Spanish Edition) nº 64 (the last number published) appears a list of code (i think only some part) some of the code seems in Assembler and the rest is in basic, y don’t understand how type those thinks so if an experienced programmer can give it a try?.
Thanks mt153! I will put it out there to see if anyone would be up for typing it all in and getting it going for sure in our next update. I’m sure someone will be up to the task :) I wish I had the time to do it myself! :)
Hi Did you manage to make contact with the guys that made TOI acid game ??
Not yet unfortunately :( Need to check up on how the game compiling was going too.
Link of the pdf magazine is no more working.
Yeah, unfortunately a lot of websites don’t last forever. I’m not sure if there is another version hosted, but we have the pages within the scans section that people can still see.

Apologies MT153 – I realized that you told us about this game last year and I did pass it onto some guys to see if they could sort it, but heard no more (and subsequently forgot about it!) Will chase up now :)
I suspected that, Frank, too good to be true :(.
FWIW, I’ve found this one: http://chomikuj.pl/ELisovy/*e2*98*85+EMULATOR/COMMODORE+C64/ROMS/D64/T/Toi+Acid+Game+%28S%29+%2819xx%29,1710030753.dsk
Sorry Fabrizio, good spot – but sadly it is a CPC disk image incorrectly labelled as a C64 title.
