Comments: This is a beta version of Fernando Martin Basket Master, as originally conceived. At that time, Gonzalo Martin Erro was the main programmer, while Julio A. Martin Erro was the graphics artist. The Martin-Erro brothers were the designers of the game, which they offered to Dinamic in an earlier development stage.#This version was programmed by the Martin-Erro brothers with the support of the Dinamic staff. Some weeks later, the owners of Dinamic alleged the original programmers were unable to meet their deadlines -the release was planned for Christmas of 1986-, and hired a new programmer (Paco Martin) who took the graphics from Julio A. Martin Erro and rewrote the whole game from scratch. As a result, Gonzalo Martin was never credited for the original program development, since all his original code must have been thrown away - according to Dinamic.#This must be the beta version which was previewed in Microhobby in november of 1986, as revealed by the screenshots.#The final version was released during the autumn of 1987.
