No, I'm not talking about the Insane Asylum where moss should be, I'm talking about the platform game that rocks

Anyone know where I can download it? my kosovo cd has given up the ghost on me :-(

Nope. Be warned though - the background sprites can go a bit funny on a StrongARM :(

I'm sure it used to be available from the Acorn
Arcade downloads area thingy. Or try Acorn Gaming
or something. Failing that, get somebody nice to
give it to you.

It was never on AA but it is freely available now. I got it off an old Arc World CD.

Didn't it get reduced to about a fiver not long after its release?

I played the demo and thought it was a bit naff. Then, much much later, I played the full game (from the AW CD) and thought it was great (although still with awful graphics). Huh!

Anyone actually completed it?

Nup. I got it from the Kosovo CD. PFJ has kindly offered to replace my scratched CD :-)

I think I got pretty close, although there was one area I couldn't get to, so I hacked (well, renamed a couple of files) the game so I could play it anyway :).

yeah, to do one of the levels you have to complete another one, I remember renaming them so I could do it without completing it ;)

I completed the first level out of three; that opened up the ID level.

I tried for ages to do the second level; never got anywhere with it. There's one bit where you go into one of the brain cells (that pulsating green thing) - and you go into *another* one in the sub-level! Always confused me that one :(

Unfortunately, my hard drive went kablooey and I haven't got it any more. Could anyone email it me? :o

What? the braincell, or the magic 'You are now permitted to play the Id!' file that unlocks the ID level? ;)
