Sadly i don't have scans for C.C.I in which Jeff had a regular 1 page column, so you'll have to make do with all i do have, from his 8/16 bit Micro days.

Though i've never personally seen the interview itself, it's been claimed that Jeff Minter stated the reason Revenge Of The Mutant Camels never got a conversion from C64 to the Atari 800XL, was the Atari hardware lacked the same number of sprites/PMG needed, present on C64 hardware.

 

 

HES didn't like the C64 game as it was, so refused to distrubute it in the USA or so i'm told..can anyone from USA confirm this?

 

 

As if that wasn't bad luck enough, Revenge Of The Mutant Camels 2 on C64 was meant to be distrubuted in the UK by Ariolasoft, as they'd handled Irdis alpha and Batalyx, but as these didn't sell in huge numbers, they pulled the plug...

 

 

Jeff ended up giving the game to Zzap64 magazine to go on a covermount tape, so his fans could actually play it.
