«Please can you help me! my mother is a MAD supaplex fan, she has been playing the original amiga version for year’s and has just managed to complete it, now she is DESPERATE for some new levels to play.

The problem is i cant find any new levels on the internet for the Amiga version, all i can find is PC levels.

PLEASE could you e-mail me and tell me where i could find some new add-on levels for the Amiga version.»

Group play

Tomer (Israel), 13.08.2000:

«Supaplex was, maybe with the exception of Digger, the single most popular game in Israel in the early PC days (IBM PC and compatibles were only beginning to gain popularity here around 1989). It was so popular, in fact, that it’s hard to find anyone who has ever used a computer and who hasn’t played it.

[…] People here often bragged about where they managed to reach in Supaplex (most of them getting stuck around level 60 and the best managed to reach the hundred-ish levels), and playing it in groups was not uncommon.»

«One of my friends had an AMIGA for about 2 years ago.
One of the games installed was, You guesses it, Supaplex. This game gave me such a thrill, that I had to play it, even at my job.»

Those funny shapes

Ozan (Turkey), 12.10.1997:

«Well, I don’t know what to tell you, let me introduce myself first.

I’m Ozan from Turkey. My father and I are two Supaplex-Fans. Let me tell you, I believe that Supaplex is the only real-time game that my father likes.

I clearly remember the day me and my father played “Warm Up” for the first time. We found out that when you go over those funny shapes, they make a funny sound and disappear. It was a good coincidence that when I had seen the big orange box with an “E” on it, I had all the infotrons. Then I touched the exit. That was my first Supaplex adventure.

I must admit that the levels you’ve made are superb. They are neither too easy, no impossible. That’s what I don’t like about user-made levels. They are incredibly hard, but hard meaning you have to be quick.»

Peter (USA?), 12.02.1997:

«Just dropped in on your home page to “visit” with one of the creators of Supaplex.

I’m writing to ask whether you and/or Philip still play the game (particularly the new levels on Maarten’s pages); and I wonder what you think of the curious post-commercial “afterlife” that the game has taken on.

Also, did you ever give any thought to adding any of your own new levels to Maarten’s collections. Doing so might be like a celebrity re-appearance after all these years, so to speak.

I don’t miss HIM, I miss Supaplex

Inger (Sweden), 09.02.1997:

«My name is Inger and I am very interested in getting Supaplex. I played Boulder Dash on my ex boyfriend’s amiga and when we found Supaplex on the PC we were very happy and spent way too many hours in front of the computer.
Unfortunately, the computer and everything in it belonged to him so when we split up, there I was, without Supaplex. I am trying to find it on the Internet but all the links seem to be wrong, except for one in Taiwan and that one doesnt work to download from. (Or I am doing something wrong, that’s also possible) So, I wonder if you know where to get this wonderful game, or if you could send me a copy??»

Dead-end

Uwe (Germany), 04.08.1996:

«Es betrifft Euer GENIALES Spiel Supaplex.

Wir haben die Amiga-Version und leider folgende Probleme:

Wir (meine Frau und ich) würden furchtbar gerne noch weitere Level spielen, hängen aber leider bei Level 99 “Joystick-Handling” in der Sackgasse.

[…]

Das Spiel ist bei weitem das Beste was wir kennen. Ich bekam es im Mai 1992 zum Geburtstag – danach spielten wir es Tag und Nacht.

«Welcome to my home page. I’ m in grade 4 and 9 years old.

My favourite sport is Gymnastics.

I also watch my favourite T.V. shows, they are Family Matters and the Simpsons.

I have a lot of fun playing on the computer, my favourite game is Supaplex.

I read Goosbumps books in my spare time.

My family goes on a lot of trips like to Calgary, Comox, Victoria, Toronto, Vancouver and England.

In the summer I like riding my bike and in the winter I like going sledding.»

Meet my mother, the Supaplex addict

Erwin (Netherlands), 15.05.1996:

«Thanks for making Supaplex. It’s a great game. Maybe funny for you to know that my mother (who is an absolute zero with computers – she even has problems finding the power-button) has been addicted to the game, and played all levels. With some levels she can even beat me! That really surprised me.»
