Notes: Brian R. Johnson shared with us his participation in making this game: Many moons ago I spent a summer as a freelance illustrator for Gottlieb. I joined at the tail end of "Bone Busters". Most of the art was already complete. I did, however, pencil and ink some small spot illustrations of skeletons doing various activities like riding a tandem bike, or playing catch. They were used in several places throughout the game.
Marketing Slogans: "Let the game talk for itself!!!"
