This says 'untested' so I'd say he's not...

It's not the first time I see this particular cassette - and a couple of other ones - listed at a very high price. I guess they are rare..

It was a late release, 1986. By that time the VIC was out of fashion. I have a copy, I've never regarded it as rare but perhaps it is.

It seems like it's quite rare indeed. See also here: http://www.retrogames.co.uk/031782/Comm ... asoft-MINT
Another expensive cassette is Rat Man: http://www.ebay.com/itm/111973755961 (see also the seller above).

These are probably two unknown text adventures :shock:
Insectamania & Planet Zeus by Enigma
1985 SUPER RARE Collection of two text adventure games. Impossible to find anything about this release on the internet, so possibly the last copy on the planet.

Viva Vic is very rare, for the reasons stated, it's a compilation of some of Jeff's VIC games but wasn't released until 1985, or 1986. I've got a copy, but I've only seen a couple others in my time. This listing has been on eBay at that price for months.

I had the opportunity of buying that one from Steinar, but I'd already bought a couple of expensive pieces from him, and it went before I could gather enough money for it sadly. Pity, I do think it's great as well! Did get a "back in the day" poster of it from him though, he found a couple stashed away.
