Spanish and Italian versions

Post by Roman »

I recently came across Spanish and Italian versions of TTO:

Does anyone here own copies (physical or digital) of these?

Or maybe somebody recognizes the logos at the bottom of the Spanish retail box? Looks like MicroProse had a distribution partner in Spain.

The bottom-right logo is for Proein, which was the local distributor for Spain of SCi Entertainment, and it was sold to Koch in 2008: https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/ ... ss-to-koch & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch_Media -- I could find an archived copy of the webpage in the Internet Archive, where you can see the company logo (if a bit pixelated): http://web.archive.org/web/200706290100 ... proein.es/

Here's another curious find: Apparently, TTO was sold also in Argentina, by Centro Mail. There's an ad for it in PC Juegos issue 33 of March 1995, showing a box cover image that resembles the Italian version, but is a little different at the bottom:

Does anyone from Argentina know more about this?
