Notes:  

[1] Game design by Ian Upton. Coding by Nick Pelling. Graphics by Pat Fox and Herman Serrano. Music by David Whittaker.

[2] Prequel to SUPER LOOPZ.

[3] Initially released by Audiogenic in the UK in 1990, the U.S. release of LOOPZ was published a few months later in early 1991 by Mindscape.

[4] Game supports mouse/joystick control.

[5] Seemingly, the graphics from the lead Atari ST version were utilised as-is for the Amiga conversion of LOOPZ without adjustment for the Amiga colour palette, thus resulting in the graphics looking quite dark and washed out in appearance.


Last known release: V1.00 (07-Feb-91) [U.S. Release]


TRIVIA: The original name for the game was CONVOLUTION, but was changed to LOOPZ for easier pronunciation. [Source: Interview with Ian Upton (game designer), courtesy of Amiga Lore]
