The first release was something like "Let's go fast before anyone else does it"
Now we have a launch pitch for the game, from fan to fan. Congratulations!!!!

Yes it is. After years of staring at the original artwork I found it to be to “tame”.
I decided to add some extra “drama” to it by adding lasers, smoke and some background coloring. Since my first design was for free and just digital I found it justified to create the new(ish) cover so no-one had to pay for the game twice (or thrice if count the Retrogenesis release).
I am really happy with it as Robot City finally gets the release it deserves and, off course, it’s number on the Videopac game-list.

And anyone doesn’t agree I’ll meet you outside with my nephew who is a cage-fighter.

Sorry Dieter. But you wanted to post an actual photograph. Good, that I have one. No need to thank me.

Don’t mock my original design or i will call mine nephew ;)

Ok. This time I will not post an actual photograph of your nephew. This will end in an grandpa forum.  :o

And there is also no need to disturb him in his nursing home, because I will ever estimate your cover, because I bought in the past 2 copys of Robot City from Retrogenesis.

So one copy is till today, in his original condition with your cover, but the second one, I changed in the "Janzl" design. But you are right, that I don`t know, what other people maked with your cover.

And soon, I will get my third copy of this game with the Robot City cover 3.0   :D


PS= When you still want to call your nephew, I will call mine. And this is an actual picture ;)   :D

Today, I received the game. Many thanks, for the new and wonderful release Dieter.

I saw, that also Winnie Forster bought a game. Strange, that he bought one. When I read his article in the german Retro Gamer, I thought, he don`t like Videopac. And when I don`t like a system, I don`t buy a game for it. Maybe, our system is not so bad as he wrote.  >:D

At the picture, we see the evolution of Robot City.

Well, Winnie got one to write a short review which might be published in one or two German magazines. Keep your fingers crossed!

And I like the photo. This should be the final release of Robot City!
