Booty - Super Silver and USA artworkBooty was initially released in the standard Firebird single cassette case.  However, the Amstrad CPC version (featuring the artwork shown here) was allegedly first published via the £3.95 Firebird Super Silver range (on cassette), although I've yet to see one for real to prove it beyond any doubt.

Booty for the Amstrad CPC then appeared on the £2.50 label and finally as a £1.99 release, along with the other versions.

    I have a love/hate relationship with this one. I liked the game originally (2.50 was pretty good value), and played it here and there.. But my cousin (who lived with us for a few months) LOVED the game and played it to death – so much so that I grew to hate it, and was going to perma-swap it with a lad at school. But then that kid changed his mind. So I was stuck with it. Fortunately, my cousin gradually got bored of it and the issue resolved itself.

    I hate that b***** tune though! >:-||
