America's Agent / Secret Service

#1 Post by Strident » Sat Oct 01, 2022 2:03 pm

Research in progress...

This one came up on my radar as Endurion has submitted a solution and game fix for...

Secret Service
https://solutionarchive.com/game/id%2C6 ... rvice.html
A German language game, listed in the database under the author Heinz Joachim Eifert

Looking at the screen on GB64...
http://www.gb64.com/game.php?id=11170&d=18&h=0

I can see that it describes itself as a port of the Apple II adventure America's Agent by C. Frey.
The publisher on GB64 is listed as CW-Publikationen Verlags GmbH/RUN
with a reference for RUN 1984/12

We also have the similar looking game, America's Agent aka Amerika's Agent in the database...
https://solutionarchive.com/game/id%2C9 ... Agent.html
...attributed to G. Retz.
...for the Spectrum version...

Although GB64...
http://www.gb64.com/game.php?id=14263&d=18&h=0
...has the C64 version credited to Michael Bauer, for the C64 screenshot on that entry in the database

Another America's Agent is also listed on GB64...
http://www.gb64.com/game.php?id=28689&d=18&h=0
...in the screenshot as being written by Carsten Frey with that C64 version by M. Weck.

There is a partial listing in the forum on Atari Age... (c) 1987/1997... for TI99/4A
https://forums.atariage.com/topic/19598 ... nt=2493120
...attributed to Carsten Ziepke with permission apparently granted "Agent was a Apple II prg (c) 84 by C.Frey. Used with kind permission."

Carsten Frey had some Apple II listings in Homecomputer magazine...
Tut-En Amun Pyramid Builder - https://archive.org/details/home-comput ... 1/page/26/
...and Helicopter Attack, Missile Attack, Space Business etc.
Small ads mentions...
