The official BR computer game was released for the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair Spectrum around 1982-1983. It featured the player as Deckard, tracking down the replicants on an electronic map.
Upon locating one, you had to chase them down a crowded street and shoot them. The music in the game is a Commodore 64 rendition of the End Title track by Vangelis. Copyright problems with the name “Blade Runner” resulted in CRL (the game’s producers) obtaining the rights to the music, thus allowing them to refer to “A game based on the music of Vangelis’ ‘Blade Runner’”.
