I was really happy with this screen, particularly the use of colour on the Amstrad version, and I even had an A4 shaped sketch which I secretly hoped would be used as the basis for the cover artwork, but it wasn't to be as cover artwork was rarely done with any care, or connection to the game, in those days.

I think this was the first game John and I worked together on, and we had high hopes for Zub as our new character.

The original title was 'Zob', but this had to be changed at the last minute, due to it being a French swear word, and the reason we chose 'Zub' was because the already completed loading screens would be easy to change from 'Zob'.

Yeah I'm pretty sure "Zob" is French slang for... male equipment
