Notes

Published in the December 1984 issue of Personal Computer World magazine (PCW).

We had initially noted that this game might have been influenced by Star Trader (1974) or by one of the later ports such as the 1984 Bug-Byte release for the Sinclair Spectrum – but the author, Sam Redfern, contacted us in September 2021 and said, "In fact, it wasn't influenced by either of those – I wasn't aware of them. It was loosely based on a boardgame which my brother and I had made. Even more loosely, it was based on the Traveller pen & paper RPG." Thanks for the correction, Sam!
