No info on MobyGames.
Looks like there was only a software version: http://www.totalshareware.com/asp/de...from%20H.E.L.L.

I'd carefully say that we can label this as 'approved'.

Wow I didn't realise that Bert Higgins: The Man from H.E.L.L. was still around. The name was mostly picked to make it stand out from the mass of other shareware which was about at the time. It looks like it succeeded at that. Sales were kind of killed off before it got going as the 1st version of Doom was launched just before Bert was released. Shortly after that 3D became the norm and Bert just look horribly dated.

I always felt that Bert was a MUCH better game than it looked on the surface - the physics simulation was way beyond most other games of the time. Line-of-sight (ie enemies invisible when obscured by scenery) was also unusual back then.

Did any of you know that it was a sequel to my previous games: Bughunt, Bughunt II & Action Bughunt for the Atari ST?

So long ago

I should have all the development stuff for it somewhere. I do remember that the map editor was an amazing tool. I used to love using that almost as much as playing the game. There was also a scripting language called FX which handled all the animations, actions and interactions.

I think it's time to look through my old harddrives.

The full version of the game is now free from one of the developers, available here.

Also, here's a working link for the original demo: Bertdemo.zip

Just write it and take some screenshots, and let us know by posting here, and we'll tell you how to send it over and will take care of the rest :-)
