TRIVIA: Remarkably, the Amiga conversion was ported from the Atari ST in less than 2 weeks during November 1988. The coders were told by Firebird to perform the Amiga conversion as quickly as possible, presumably because the December Christmas sales period was looming. Most of the heavy lifting with the game coding was done by Rob Hylands, with coding support provided by Rob Brooks purely because Rob Hylands had had very little exposure to the Amiga previously.
