Commodore Amiga - Released - 1991

The Adventures of Quik and Silva is a platform game where you control a pair of small droids.

Commodore 64 - Released - 1988

This skiing game is viewed from behind the player in 3D. There are four different events available – Slalom, Giant Slalom, Downhill and Ski Jump.

However, your quiet little hack is soon disturbed: The government wants you for a secret mission. It, again, involves a robot drone and you're the one at the remote control. Although this time, it's not the...
