Original works only on TOS 1.00-1.62 . Then, final level, maze works
only on TOS 1.00-1.02 ! Then, bug :
Problems, bugs, errors: After careful examining files and playing game, I can say that this is pretty poorly made, and especially poor tested (if tested at all). Game is OK until Labyrinth section (which is coded in different manner, btw.). It is boring, too hard - health goes too fast away, and if someone manages to reach stairs, then even worse 'arcade' part comes - it is dumb, slow, too much lag on joystick + silly lightning bolt, not in style of whole game. Then too much blood drops, so again too hard. If someone despite all it reached 6-th level, then can not find exit to game End. Why ? Most likely because bug. No signs that it is some delayed copy protection. And possible other bug(s) - sometimes game stops to respond on joystick. If someone finished this, Atari version (French or English), please contact me. I really want to hear how it happened.
Another funny thing is 3 floppy UBI Soft release : First
floppy is single sided, second and third are double sided, but filled
less than half . So, why not all 3 singlesided, or just 2 DS floppy ???
Action 16 release - it has corrupted file FILE09. After win in battle game will crash. You have been warned.
Downloads:STX images of org. French, 3 floppy vers. Min RAM 512K.
On Action 16 release, what is English version on single floppy, file FILE09 is corrupted. It is not copy protected, so instead it, I put here ST image with correct file FILE09 :
ST Floppy image English, 1 floppy version. Min RAM 512K. Works on TOS 1.00 - 1.02 . Trainer opts. + hack for finale.
ST Floppy image French, 1 floppy version. Min RAM 512K. Works on TOS 1.00 - 1.02 . Trainer opts. + hack for finale.
Sorry for TOS v. limits, but it is because poor game code. If want to play from floppy on higher TOS versions, may use hard disk versions. Only that then need min 1MB RAM :
Hard disk runnable min RAM 1MB English v. Fixed for all TOS versions. Trainer options and hack to make finishing of game possible. TT+ , Falcon+ .
Hard disk runnable min RAM 1MB French v. Fixed for all TOS versions. TT+ , Falcon+ . Trainer options and hack to make finishing of game possible. TT+ , Falcon+ .
About game bug at final level : Iron Lord site - however, it is obvious that Atari ST version is different - especially in maze section.
