The SPC Vision crew first mentioned this to us sometime ago when I rather presumed he'd mistaken it for an already released game on one of the Golden Oldies Volumes. However it turns out that this was dropped from any release. Shame, it looked kinda good! I have to admit they have me at a disadvantage because i'm not familiar with the original Scramble that this would be a clone from. More than the screenshot above is nowhere available anymore, but it's Scramble on CD-i! It never got a fancy name like the others... I guess they knew that the game wouldn't be included. It was a shame, because I remember some people were real enthusiastic about it. I liked Guardian alot and thought the effects of the ship blowing apart were particularly impressive by CD-i standards. With shrapnel rebounding off the planets surface as shards hit the ground. The attention to accuracy was nice as well, when the ship blew up in free space the shards just drifted apart in all directions! Cute little animations all round, it looked like Scramble would get the same kind of treatment and it looks like a perfect alternative for the lost Space Ranger CD-i prototype as well! And do you remember Breaker, another CD-i prototype by The Vision Factory (aka SPC Vision)!
