Much to my surprise it was moderately successful, with more than 500 people sending me the cash for the "registered" version. I like to think this was largely due to the excellent graphics, but it may have also had something to do with the idiot-proof run-around-and-shoot-the-other-guy gameplay, combined with the wacky sound effects. It was even featured on the coverdisk of excellent British Amiga games magazine Amiga Power.
I was also apparently the only person who ever figured out how to get AMOS (the bizarre compiled BASIC variant it was written in) to scroll smoothly in eight directions, but that's another story.
With hindsight, I probably should have been out doing something more interesting at the time, but I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who were kind enough to send me money. Send your EV memories to me at simesgreen at yahoo.com
