Finally the super rare, for the first time ever, the FIRE KING codewheel is online for all to download. Is might be the very last Commodore 64 code wheel I needed to complete the online collection for you to download.
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.

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. ”
Double Dribble disk did not contain any on disk copy protection.
BUT instead uses a manual/code book look-up. (SEE Below for the photos)
When you boot the game you immediate get this black screen below.
You need the RED Code sheet to enter the 4 digit Password to start the game.
In this case for C07 you would enter 8467, then the game would start.
Here is the Original RED code sheet – RED because it was hard to Photocopy back in the day. Special THANKS goes to Jerry Kurtz for this original:
Then I convert to B/W with Photoshop so you can print it out:
