Split back into pages

I understand many of these versions are similar, but as they are expanded, should they maybe have their own pages, with a link here and maybe a line or two about them? --simonlc (talk) 21:39, 16 December 2018 (PST)

I tend to agree. These versions may all have been published by Mirrorsoft in the UK, but each platform's version is different, and these same versions were sold by Spectrum HoloByte in the US, while Spectrum HoloByte's DOS version was published by Mirrorsoft in the UK. Instead of lumping these together by publisher they should be arranged by platform with a different article for each. Oknazevad (talk) 14:22, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
Strike that thought. The US-published versions were not just repackaged MirrorSoft versions, and the US Amiga and Atari ST versions (along with the Apple II and Mac versions) were quite different, being essentially ports of the Spectrum HoloByte DOS version that used the larger color pallets to enhance the graphics. If anything, I think those versions need to be added to the Spectrum HoloByte article, while the MirrorSoft versions stay together (and the BPS versions stay together, save for the Famicom version), except the Commodore 64 version, which is a truly unique version and should be its own article.
