Swedish tape version
The US disk version has an elegant LP-style double foldout cover, containing
the floppy, a small booklet (or, coming from a mystery edition, a large booklet) and a standard Accolade warranty card. There has
been a cartoon character sticker on at least some of the the original games,
presumably to give the impression of a new product, while reusing the old
packaging. I also put similar-looking editions from other countries here.
Note how the warranty for the PC edition lists more computer and game types,
a nice documentation af a rapidly evolving market.
The Australian tape version came in videotape style clamshell case, with
a charmingly handmade, typewritten "addendum to manual", explaining how to
load from tape, and a $5000
giveaway promo by Ozi Soft, the distributor. Unfortunately the original
owner apparently took part in the promo, so I have no details.
The manual is shorter than the standard one; see the
comparison page for details.
