Lester M. Fong (of says:
Made In France 2 and Synchro are both mini-game/tech-demo type things for the C64 that Yak distributed on Compunet or on magazine cover-tapes, or something like that…
Made In France 2 is a 2-player Breakout thingamajig, and Syncro is a goat synchronisation game which bears some similarities to one of the sub-games in Batalyx.
Update from Lester:
“I found out that in MIF2 you can make the computer take control of the bottom bat by pressing ‘A’, so you can play it as a 1 player game!”

From Wikipedia: Compunet was a U.K. based interactive service provider, catering primarily for the Commodore 64 but later for the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST. It was also known by its users as CNet. Compunet hosted a wide range of content, and users were permitted to create their own sections within which they could upload their own graphics, articles and software.  It ran from 1984 before closing down in May 1993.
