This is a strange one, a loading screen for a game I've never played.
I did this while at Binary Design, in 1987, and I think it was done as a favour for Mastertronic. It wasn't a Binary Design game and I don't even recall seeing it running. Like the Street Surfer loading screen I did, we just got a call asking to do a loading screen, double quick, so that's what I did.
It probably took about two days, maybe a day and a half, with most of that time spent plotting the individual pixels of the stipple pattern on the gradients.
I must have known something about the game to include the elements I did in the picture. Unless I made them up...?
