You know, I don't quite know.  I haven't checked but I was indeed surprised to see so few versions.  This may be a cool game to see updated in some fashion.

I couldn't find a video but there is a version called ZX Berserk for the Spectrum released in 1982:



There is also a Public Domain Atari ST version:

There was also a Lynx version which never came out, shame because it could have done the speech perfectly:

Still good to know what might have been with the Lynx.

That sucks.  It would have been awesome to play this game on the Lynx!

A port of Frenzy is also currently in the works by Bob.  There was a port being worked on for the 2600 as well that looked fantastic!
