Thanks for your comments so far. :)

@B3L4 That's why I will add a hidden cheat-menu in the final (Of course High-Scores don't save if you use it.)
I already got requests for a NTSC-version. Although the program runs with NTSC (tried on emulator) it's too buggy yet. I will see if I can improve that, respectively make a NTSC-version, too.
The biggest problem is the slow scroll-routine which uses no double-buffering. Although it's faster than the original, improving it further would mean to change bigger parts in the code and having less RAM for sprites. But maybe I can get additional cpu-cycles in other parts.

I love it, challanging levels, if you guys have the better ones in the full game you have me on this one! I love the idea to have stage select up to the level what is completed already + Hi score welcome. Not so sure if trainer will be needed, but will happen we all know.... Hokuto Force will kick in :P

Can we get some love here on NTSC land? It is suck to play it in vice instead of on my C64 or C128... :(

Ofcourse I love the work on this. Also the nice touches like the swimming.

One thing that always bothered me in the original though, was the somewhat sluggishness of movement ; too slow jumping and the walk momentum (something I also dislike with Sonic). but nevertheless a welcome release, looking forward to the final!
