Synopsis

Plot

"Greetings. We would like you to save our world. We are from Earth, or rather from Alter-Earth. Our world is in the next dimension and we need you to stop the flow of a gas which an irresponsible scientist has invented. The gas has escaped and killed everyone living near the scientist and is slowly drifting towards our city below.

We found you using "The Quill" by Gilsoft, one of your best software firms. If you will help please enter the light in front of you."

Notes

Only released in a compilation with Earthbound.

I suspect the date might be wrong. If this was _only_ ever released in a compilation with Earthbound, it would have to be 1986 not 1984.

However, I'd still like to double check with the primary sources to see if the reference in Popular Computing Weekly 1985 is to this or another game. And that means waiting until I can access World of Spectrum's magazine archives again.

You're right - I don't know the status of WoS' archives, but please keep us updated!
