Just a quick heads up: in current issue (nov. 2014) no. 135 of Retrogamer magazine there are three pages devoted to Creativision!!!

the article in Retrogamer is about the Creativision games, not bad written.
Luca: Yes, i got your email and we have analyzed (the different parts) the file and let it run.

I have read the article and found it great. Very few minor unaccuracies, but the overall quality is very high.

About the WAV recording: are the various pieces part of a single program? Or is there anything (usless) there? Would you call it "the official, perfect WAV recording of the Air-Sea Attack game" ?

Thanks :-)

The WAV recording contains the usual BASIC loader script to $B000.

Then there are three copies of the game - each identical to the original CV Air Sea Rescue.

I found the article very entertaining and a good read.

Thanks much, @username@.
I will upload a new version of the WAV file onto the CVE website, with just 1 copy of the program.
