In the late eighties I was a teenager obsessed by comics and computer games. I had a subscription to Action Force weekly, a copy of Deluxe Paint on the Amiga and a coder for a dad. This melting pot of inspiration and creative potential resulted in my first ever computer game and my first role as Art Director.

Based on the Action Force helicopter and Cobra hydrofoil toys, it was simply called "DragonFly". Marvel at it's greatness! You could pack a whole lot of gameplay into a 30kb exe back then...
