An Interlude

It’s been seventeen years since I first saw this picture. For seventeen years I’ve desperately wanted to play what is in all probability a terrible platform shoot-’em-up. Some people live in the hope that one day they will see the Spectrum version of The Great Giana Sisters. Me? I just want to see the 1990 Virgin Games release of Judge Dredd.

Fantastic art, isn't it?

You know what’s really weird? The complete lack of any information on this game. As far as the web goes, there’s versions for the C64, the Amiga, even the Atari ST. But the Speccy version? Nada. It’s not even on the 2000AD website, while the earlier Melbourne House game is. Google refused even to mention the YS review – thankfully I didn’t just imagine the whole thing.

Look, chances are good that one of you folks out there has this game. After all, it’s not like the game got released and then nobody at all bought it. (I hope.) So here’s the deal – I’m prepared to offer one million brownie points for a .TAP or snapshot or even a real tape of this game. (Or even money, at a push.)

And if nobody does send me the game, then I’ll be visiting each and every one of you and going through your old tapes.
