Anyone know this game?
« on: 17:38, 12 October 19 »
Ok so i've been searching for years for this game off and on (looking through an entire rom list didnt help as I cant remember the name!)
Ive looked on many lots of tapes on ebay to see if I could see the cover. I think I just had the tape of it.


See if this description can trigger anything with you guys to help me find it, id be very grateful!!
So what i remember of the game is that it is like a cctv security system, and theres these robots (i think sort of like short circuit where they are on tracks) and they patrol the corridors, i think you can control one too.
And you can switch between screens.
That is all i can remember! I remember enjoying it but not much else other than the above!

Errr... sounds a little like IMPOSSIBLE MISSION?
THESE DAYS, most shops have wheelchair access, but once inside the shop, the needs of the disabled are all but forgotten. Whilst in my newsagents the other day, I realised how difficult it must be for someone in a wheelchair to purchase a top shelf magazine. They would have to ask someone to pass it down which would cause great embarrassment... Wouldn't it be a good idea if newsagents had a pneumatic ramp by the magazines to lift wheelchairs up to the top shelf. It could be fitted with flashing lights and a klaxon to warn other customers to keep clear of the mechanism when in operation.

thanks so much for the help everyone am so chuffed. it is Hacker 2!!
I am on the hunt to get all of the tapes that i used to have as i stupidly sold them when i was a teen.
i own a games shop but hardly see many amstrad tapes get brought in (have bucket loads of c64 and spectrum though!)


that screenshot and loading screen pdf is super handy i will be using this to find the rest of them as there are some ive ive forgotten but recognise an image or music.


huge amstrad fan here. never coded on it (i typed in a few pages to get a card game to run but got a few characters wrong somewhere and it never ran lol).
i had an amstrad back in 1990 with the green screen.


i tend to play the games in green screen even on emulators even though its an inferior way to play haha. just something about it takes me back and thank you for your help with finding the name of the game!
great community here thank you
