Lost Treasure of Old-Skool Gaming Found: Saboteur II

Yesterday, I was tidying up my old room and found hidden in a drawer a hidden treasure. It was the manual of an old game that I have bought back in the 80s, Saboteur 2. It was a cool game and I have spent quite some time on it, exploring and drawing maps of the fortress.

In the game you were a female ninja (sister of the guy that was the protagonist in Saboteur) and your mission was to disable a nuclear missile that was located in a fortress and escape.

The game was very addictive and the manual, brought back many fond memories (and the love for my old speccy). For archival reasons I attach the manual (in Greek) in this post. If you want the page in better resolution, just mail me.
