I remember playing "Rocket Ranger" on my Amigas it was a great game...I
played it many many times and never finished it...IIRC there was no save
game for this and it was an adventure with arcade sequences...took about
1 or 2 hours to go through all the game...

You had to have a "decoder wheel" so you could load the proper quantity
of "rocket fuel" in your booster rockets to move from country to
country...also a way of battling software piracy...if you did not have
the wheel, you just could not play the game cause you could not go no

Unitl someone took 20 minutes to make a spreadsheet file of the wheel
data and pass it along with the game disks...

I suppose they are including this decoder wheel "map" in the files..

I also remember "It Came From The Desert" from these guys...same type of
game...great graphics with a "movie" type scenario...
