I was interested to read that in the post concerning "Black Sails : The Ghost Ship", ShinjiGR mentions having an English translation available for Pendulos's "Hollywood Monsters".

So I've been scouting round to see if the game can still be purchased anywhere ??

But I've not had any luck finding it so far rolleyes

Both Pendulo and Dinamic Multimedia went bankrupt so it may not be available for legal distribution anywhere.

How good is your Spanish? If I'm not mistaken, FX Interactive is selling the game until 12/15 for .95 euro. It may be difficult to understand the website without a translator- I picked it up in 2012 when they offered it for free.

Thanks for that link, Ewil02 thumbsup

My Spanish is non-existent but I have sent an email (composed using a Google translator) and asked if they will deliver to the UK - and said I can pay using PayPal.

If they say "yes" then I'll have to think about how I can actually order it as no doubt I would have to register at the site and supply all sorts of information eek

I think flotsam is referring to the English language version.

Sorry Mad that was confusing crazy
I remember reading somewhere ages ago that it was done in English but never got released but that unofficial copies were out there.
May have been wishful thinking
Play Next Big Thing instead - looks very similar wave

Flotsam said "I don't believe it was ever available for sale but I understand that copies do exist."

Games aren't always released, even after they are finished. The publisher decides that the cost of publishing the game will exceed the revenue from selling it and that's the end of it. That doesn't mean that there aren't copies of what would have been the official release if it had been released.

There certainly was a Spanish release though.

There's a little about the game at the ***Web Archive of the JustAdventure Review of Hollywood Monsters***
Quote:
Hollywood Monsters is an older game from the Spanish developer Pendulo Studios, who are probably better known for their more recent Runaway: A Road Adventure game. It should be noted that Hollywood Monsters is not publicly avaliable in English, and as of this writing it is unclear whether it ever will be. The distributor of the Spanish version was a company Dinamic which unfortunately ceased to exist.

Mad, I'm not sure if there is a disc version of the game around. The one being sold by FX Interactive on the link above appears to be the digital download. The one I got from them a couple years ago was also a download version. Hopefully the email response you get from them will be good news.

Thanks very much, flotsam and Jenny100 thumbsup

I hadn't realised it was a download on offer from FX Interactive, Ewil02, but that would be fine.
However, I haven't heard anything from them at all.

Maybe my "translated" Spanish email to them was simply not good enough sad
