Computer Magic, Ltd. was a Long Island, New York, United States-based software house incorporated on February 26, 1980, and dissolved on September 28, 1994. [1] It is not to be confused with the Atari 2600 third-party publisher Computer Magic Inc. (aka CommaVid) [2] and is probably not to be confused with the publisher of Volcano for the ZX Spectrum.
