A few years back I was emailing Julian Eggebrecht (ex-Rainbow Arts) aboutQuote:> I once read in a magazine , that "Rainbow Arts" was porting some of

the game Ataris commissioned from Rainbow Arts, i.e. Jinks, Bad Cat etc.
I can't remember what exactly he said but it was something along the lines
that Atari insisted on having those games on cartridges only (because of the
harder to do pirating) and not as disk versions, which seemed financially
not viable to Rainbow Arts.
According to him, they do. Or at least, they did.Quote:> But in this magazine , ports of "Great Giana Sisters" or "Street Gang"

Once again, I may be wrong on this one. Could be that only Jinks was
completed (by the AMC lads) and the others weren't even started. Maybe I'm
mixing that up as well... (-;
In 2002 there was a thread in csa8 on Lucasfilm's Labyrinth which, contrary
to rumours, was never even started for the Atari.
