From Wikipedia:
"Mindshadow is a 1984 graphic adventure game released for the Amstrad CPC, Apple II, Atari 8-bit family, Commodore 64, Macintosh, IBM PC compatibles (as a self-booting disk), ZX Spectrum, and later the Atari ST and Amiga The game was developed by Interplay Productions and published by Activision."

&

"The game had the same gaming engine as The Tracer Sanction, and the art was drawn by QuickDraw. It was based loosely on the Robert Ludlum novel The Bourne Identity. Fargo would later say that the amnesiac storyline was unique for the time and set the game apart from its contemporaries.
Mindshadow was a "middling success" and "solid seller". The game was included in the Interplay's 10 Year Anthology"
