Lipticoe for IBM PC / PCjr
« on: March 27, 2013, 12:31:57 PM »
I don't know where else to go.  I am searching desperately for this game.  I played it mostly on my IBM PCjr -- and there is virtually no sign of it anywhere..  If you do searches for it and find results, it's mostly me seeking out the game.

Anyone?...  Anyone out there have this game in their archives somewhere?

The name is : Lipticoe

I think it was an independent developer -- like one of those diskettes you would buy for 3 dollars out of a catalog of random programs.

Any help -- appreciated!

Thanks

Hi sen,

Unfortunately there's no entry in our dats with such a name, are you sure it was that name? I've googled a bit for "Lipticoe PCJr" and there are few items, seems to be kinda rare, no? Would be awesome to add it to our dats.

The only thing i've found quickly is:

Lipticoe 1987-88 . Somewhat like "Load Runner" only you had to keep away from the bad guys who were always after you. It played on my IBM PC JR

Hopefully someone else might know a bit more about it  :-\

Yeah, this game was like many others back then when you could order a disk of games out of a catalog... I don't think it had much real distribution.  I came across this too... someone was actually selling it and I missed out
