Behind Jaggi Lines ?-??-84


This is a late beta of Rescue on Fractalus when it was still known as Behind Jaggi Lines.  This beta is closer to the final version than the Rescue Mission prototype, but is still missing several key features.  This is the version of Rescue on Fractalus that was the most commonly pirated on BBS systems back in the day.  Interestingly the Atari 5200 prototype labeled Behind Jaggi Lines appears to be more complete than this one.

Thanks to Kr0tki for finding many of these differences.
