FIRE KING INFO:
Publisher: SSG Strategic Studies Group Pty Ltd.
Developer: Micro Forté Pty. Ltd.
The city of Stormhaven Bay was once enjoying prosperity, protected by the balance of four elements: Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. Each element had a mage that supervised and controlled it, preserving harmony in the land. But the Fire Mage, the leader of the group, was slain by a horrifying monster. This broke the balance, and monsters began to roam the land and attack townspeople. A brave hero is needed to defeat the fiends and restore peace!
Fire King is a follow-up to Demon Stalkers. Like its predecessor, it is essentially a Gauntlet variant in its core. The player explores the top-down world, descending into dungeons and fighting hordes of enemies in fast-paced, action-oriented combat. Compared to its spiritual predecessors, Fire King incorporates more RPG elements.The player can choose to control one of the six available characters, and specialize in one of the three disciplines: Magic, Armor, and Strength. Spells and other helpful items can be found in the dungeons and used against the enemies.

I recently purchased this Copy-Q v3.0 disk and it came with a manual.
I already had versions: v1.1, v2.0, v2.1, but not this version.
The manual is small and the text is even SMALLER, I had to scan it in just
to read it, so here it is: the Copy-Q Manual
More info about Copy-Q can be found here:
Here is a video I did showing the Kracker Jax ELITE Series.
These copied the harder protections like Rapidlok and V-Max on the Commodore 64.
The ECHO was developed by Jim Drew.
The Echo and it’s software was released before the Shadow (Megasoft)
The Echo software also because the Supercard version
From Jim Drew, “ECHO was sold for about 6 months or so (through my company called “UnderWare”) before it was renamed as Supercard and sold through Utilities Unlimited, a spin-off company that Reggie created due to the Shadow disaster which destroyed Megasoft. UnderWare had ads in Compute!, RUN, and several other magazines. I sold ECHO, X-RAY (a density display), and a few other products. ”
