Editor notes (2)

Available on 16k cartridge, 16k disk, and 16k cassette. 1 player, but a second player-cartographer is reccomended. Will not run on XL/XE machines without a translator.
William Mataga created a Berserk clone, Ihor Wolosenko said 'I just don't think it's kosher' to publish a clone and also didn't want to be sued. So Ihor, William (Cathryn) salvaged the code and came up with Shamus.

William and Cathryn Mataga are actually one and the same! At some point William became Cathryn.
