Last Gladiator released?

Post by Andre » Wed Apr 07, 2004 12:05 pm

Hi,

I noticed the entry of "Last Gladiator" in the Electronic Arts section. I have never seen or heard of this game as an Atari release. Where stems the info about such a release from?

I think the game is EA's first release on the Atari - along with Word Flyer - and it probably didn't sell a lot. There is a binary floating around and it probably IS the program in question but:
- nowhere do the company logo and credits appear
- the graphics and gameplay are not the same as the Apple and C64 versions.

I agree with André - I've never seen an Atari version of that game. Seems to me it was only released for the C64.

Can someone try that binary floating around perhaps? I don't have it so I can't!
