Realm of Impossibility
1984 Electronic Arts
Programmed by Mike Edwards & Henry S. Bolley
Most text of the present article comes from the relevant letter published in the fifth issue of the British C64 magazine ZZAP!64 (September 1985).

Ariolasoft, 9.95 cass, 12.95 disk, joystick only

Issue 3 (July 1985) of Zzap!64 had the Advertisers' and Reviews' indexes all messed up. Characteristically, a review of Realm of Impossibility was listed for page 104, but on that page there was a review of Gates of Dawn (which was listed as being in page 30, but in that page there was an advertisement of Ariolasoft's Spelunker -- you get the idea). A letter published in issue 5, mentioned:

I've just noticed a bug in your mag. The issue concerned was the July one. Where was the review of Realm of Impossibility? Instead there was a review of Gates of Dawn. I was mega, mega cheesed off about it as I was thinking of getting it. Any chance of a review in future?

Lloyd Mangram's reply was:

Julian did review Realm of Impossibility but it wasn't included due to too much editorial writing. By the next issue we decided it was too old to review. For those who are interested, the marks were:

Presentation: 69%
Graphics 36%
Sound 24%
Hookability 45%
Lastability 48%
VFM 46%
Overall 44%
