This is a good puzzle game. But when it's game over, it's everything from the beginning again. Why not continue from last level?

I must have packed up the old cartridge file 2 times :-(
Sorry!

The game is now a strong eight from me!

Finally I have played the game and it is very nice!

A game that even an old man like me can handle without cheating ;-)
One of my favorite games this year in the competition.

Want to give the game a high rating but then it does not work on the cartridge which is the format that is developed, I have to lower the grade :-(

@ron.sos: The bug only appears on cartridge, so if the cartridge does not work for you, try the crack which is not on cartridge anymore. ;)

Had a proper game of Fickle. Great fun. SFX is amusing and music is very basic, but this is a great game overall.

I have downloaded the bug fixed file but I can not get it to work in Vice:-(
Installed the latest Vice but it still does not work.
Is there any special settings required for this game?

To make matters worse, some recent though not latest versions of vice had a bug that did indeed blend in chargen at #$31 even though it should not have. So buggy did work in emulation...

the sad part is, however, that the bug was discovered AND FIXED shortly after Powerglove [16kb cartridge] was released, and fixed VICE snapshots have been available for about a year. so download the snapshot NOW, and don't use the old 2.4 anymore. kthxbye :)

I think this Problem should be called "Lazycow bug"! (named after the unlucky discoverer) ;)

Just for clarity, I'll allow this fixed version as a replacement entry within the compo - lazycow also had similar issues with powerglove last year.

I really enjoyed this one btw. :)

Like the neat hi-res design on this one and the puzzle mechanism is quite good once sussed out - nice work, well done.

This is a known issue with 16 KB carts. It is non trivial for the unexperienced coder (with carts) as tables like these: http://unusedino.de/ec64/technical/aay/c64/memcfg.htm are insufficient then (GAME, EXROM).
To make matters worse, some recent though not latest versions of vice had a bug that did indeed blend in chargen at #$31 even though it should not have. So buggy did work in emulation...
