It's so unfortunate that the sfx volume is so high you can't hear most of what they're saying :(

Nice article: Oliver Twins - Wikiwand

Amazing tidbit:

Quote
At one point during the 1980s it was reported that 7% of all UK games sales were attributable to the Oliver Twins

I found this annoying as well.

One thing I did notice is that they said they initially submitted the game to The Power House and they then went bust and never got paid, so they submitted it to Players instead - yet their own web site states the opposite (it was first submitted to Players, but they weren't paid so they submitted it to The Power House). Based on the scans of the inlay on CPC-POWER and the copyright dates, I'd say that their web site has the correct version of the story.

What I am certain of is that it was common practice for bedroom coders to be ripped off by software houses in the "good old days"! >:(
