Well, as far as I know, he only did covers for Dinamic games. I had never thought of that, you're most probably right. Other games he did covers for include: AMC Capitan Trueno (one of my all time favorite Spanish games) Game Over 2 (which was just the English release of Lorna) Do you know

About packaging experiences... once I received on a padded envelope this unopened game I was really looking forward to add to my collection. Everything went smoothly except for the fact that probably some moron from the Portuguese post office let it drop on water and the envelope was soaked, and

I've just seen the Game Over 2 box, it's definitely a Royo. But it was stated that it was originally to be known as Phantis... so this game had 3 names? Sorry, my goof on this one... it was called Phantis originally. Lorna was a game by Topo based on a comic book. Really great graphics

Question: Are there really that many software collectors on eBay or is it mainly people hit with a wave of nostalgia that decide they want to play an old game again? I would guess they're collectors, as anyone who simply wants to play a game can download it for free (unless they want the

I have an original Softporn disk (On-Line Systems) that doesn't work because (1) the imbecile shipper shipped it in a padded envelope which (2) the imbecile mail carrier jammed into my tiny apartment mailbox, bending it. Fortunately I only paid $3 for it, but still. Had one doofus from England

And do you remember if Phantis and Game Over 2 had the same Royo drawing on the box? No. Phantis had a cover drawn by Aspiri (it was a blonde with a bunch of goblin type things around her) and the Game Over 2 cover was the one done by Royo. I really think that the Royo pic was just a random
