Like the first Cuthbert Chronicle game (Skid Row Adventure) the location descriptions contain American spellings so it is likely that the game was originally written for the CoCo and may pre-date the Microdeal copyright year (1985) that appears in the listing.

Wasn't it a Microdeal specialty to buy the license to American games and relabel them as Cuthbert games? That seemed to be the deal with the arcade titles, anyway. The games varied wildly, visually, so Cuthbert changed appearance all the time :)

Jacob, that is true for many an arcade game that Microdeal sold, but in this case the only link with Microdeal's mascot (Cuthbert) is that the game appeared as a listing in an issue of the Cuthbert Chronicle magazine.
