After having read Peiselulli's interview here http://csdb.dk/release/?id=111244, i realized that the main gameplay code can be optimized for a full RAM-only crack.
You can disable all badlines with two $d011 writes per frame, and you don't have to resync to the timer in every line.
Maybe this will even leave enough spare cycles for a tune.

So, any crackers worth the title left? :)

Finally! I was waiting for this tune since X'2010. This is where I had a chance to listen to it for the very first time (unfinished). Since than this melody plays in my head. Love it!

Very nice soundtrack (+ happy to hear Linus again, beeaatch) and good choice on disabling filters when 6581 is detected! :)

Nicely done hehe, seen orignal Atari 2600 version on youtube and had no idea what's going on on the screen :))

/ed/ this helps ;D

Never played the original game I have no idea what to do after destroying the ship's shield... but well :))
Ok,found it :D

Thumbs up to the open border design.
I liked the colouful image that appears on the title screen.
Game play wasn't my cup of tea.
Loved the tune! :D

@rough: Flaschbier! The good old days!

Using the border for a game is absolutely innovative! Perfect coding. But I have to say that I've never been a fan of this game...

It was tested already - on hardware :)

Can somebody test if this runs also on a real NTSC machine ? I could test it only on VICE :-<

Of course this can be run from an EasyFlash cart too ;-) use Draco Cart Maker to compile a list of titles if you don't want to dedicate the whole EF-cart to a single crt.
Anyway, this is pretty much superb!

This game is the bomb - one of my favourites from the compo. Classic gameplay, fullscreen action and kick ass music!

Sorry, no .prg or .d64 yet. Runs on cartridge only. Use Emulator or for example 1541U to run it on real hardware. Happy cracking :->
