Martian Threat Introduction

In November 1996 Dutch collector Marco Kerstens bought a lot of Videopac EPROMs which had been found on a flea market in the Netherlands. The EPROMS contained an almost complete collection of all the released Videopac games, but also a few games that were never released. One of them was a game called „Jake“ – at least this name appears on the title screen.

Over the following years, a few more copies of that game were found, and even a type-written manual. So we found out that the original title of the game is probably „Martian Threat“. It was written by GST Video (like Norseman, Blobbers and the unreleased games Shark Hunter and Interpol).

Two versions of the game were found over the years, but they show only minor differences. Martian Threat seems to be complete and is fully playable. So I decided to bring that game to the Videopac community on cart, of course as with my previous releases with original style label, English manual and inlay for a Videopac+ box.

Martian Threat was released at Eurocon/Retrobörse on 11th October 2008 in Karlsruhe and is available via mail order since 13th October 2008. I hope you all like my new release.
