- TRIVIA -


Licensed to Jaleco.


Manufacturers Ashby Computers and Graphics Ltd were better known in the 1980s as 'Ultimate Play The Game', one of the best UK software houses of the time - these days known as 'Rare', a subsidary of Microsoft. At the time the majority of their work was for the Z80-based Sinclair Spectrum, so it's not suprising to see that Dingo is similarly Z80-based. The font used in Dingo is the same font used in their Spectrum game of the same year, Atic Atac, and the Copyright symbol displayed on screen is copied directly from the standard Spectrum font.

The encrypted version uses a AY8910 @ 1.78975 Mhz instead 1.62 Mhz.
