Packaging for Sinclair QL Omega by Caret Computers

Omega is a 3D graphic adventure from the first person perspective.

This is an adventure where you play a mercenary (codename Omega) in the year 2156. Your mission is to seek out and destroy a government computer which is hidden underground and well guarded.

You start off moving along roads, and have to tackle various flying creatures which attack on your travels. You can enter houses and other items which are shown on your radar at the side of the screen. There are mazes and of course the enemy to contend with.

The program uses a specific form of copy protection - if the disk (or mdv1_) is not created with FORMAT 'flp1_'&chr$(10) the program hangs as soon as you kill a bird (thanks to Martin Head's useful SuperCharge / Turbo de-compiler for figuring this one out!)
