Introducing Qwak

Qwak is a fast-paced platformer developed by an indie game developer called Jamie Woodhouse. The first version of the game appeared over 20 years ago on the BBC Micro, and over the years it has appeared on a number of different platforms.

About 10 years ago I purchased 2 copies for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance – one for me and one “just in case”. They weren’t expensive yet I knew the run would be limited so why not?

A few weeks back I came across the games while cleaning out some storage. I checked eBay to see what they were going for and was delighted when I found two copies listed for a lot more than I paid for mine, so I decided to list one of them.

When I originally bought the games they came with a paper manual – literally two pieces of A5 paper stapled together. The manuals weren’t with the games when I found them though so I listed just the cartridge.

One of the other listings on eBay included the manual but was listed at almost twice the price. I reasoned that most people wouldn’t care about such a flimsy piece of paper and looked forward to a sale.
