As we commented in the recently modified card of the first part, The Granite Point Ghost
, for a long time we have had a gibberish of care in CEZ with these games... For a long time we had the first part for C64 and the second part for MSX 2 in the same game card.
To see how lost we were, we hadn't even realized that the game was for the second generation of MSX, even though the greater breadth of the color palette was evident.
So I started collecting data and ordering the mess.
As I mentioned in the other card, the series of games was created in 1982 by Tom Snyder Productions, Inc., for the most popular systems in the United States: Apple II, Atari 8-bit, Commodore 64 and PC MS-DOS.
It consisted of two parts; the first one was called "Snooper Troops: Case # 1: The Granite Point Ghost" and the second one "Snooper Troops: Case # 2 - The Case of the Disappearing Dolphin".
The games were published by Spinnaker Software, which from what we have seen on more than one occasion had a close relationship with the Spanish Idealogic. This company was responsible of locating, as so many other times, the versions for Commodore 64. But not only that, but as on other occasions, they even created the MSX versions.
Unfortunately, at the time of writing these lines, the Commodore 64 version of El Delfín desaparecido is not preserved.

Juego original de Spinnaker, con un nombre bastante distinto, y que Idealogic adaptó cambiando unos cuantos gráficos (en MSX, en C64 sólo está traducido), y que le dan un mejor aspecto que el original.
Profesión: Detective, es un juego de investigación que me recuerda bastante al posterior “Donde está Carmen San Diego“, y que combina algunas fases arcade con otras “de pensar”, que aunque gráficamente no sean de le leche, en conjunto funcionan realmente bien.
