Much to my surprise, CONS was more than right. This game has won the Meteoriks award in the interactive category for the year 2014. WOW! :)

This will easily make its way into the top 5 games in 2014 on the C64. Well done!

@Green: Which game screen are you experiencing the problem at? calibration? title? have you tried with more brightness/contrast or another monitor? how much jitter do you see with no filter while holding the pen still? does the cross move smoothly on a text-free area? please be more specific. :)

That being said, the button is only used in the main menu and to skip forward in the evaluation screen, so you might want to spare the added work and use CBM or F7 instead, which is just as fun.
I hope this helps.

The light pen we used didn't have a button. That's why the button is not there in the schematic. But I should have mentioned the possibility anyway; sorry and thanks for pointing it out. :P
I suggest you use POTY as a trigger input because it's how the Magnum Light Phaser is wired, and the Magnum Light Phaser gun appears to be the one supported by most light pen games (see http://jderogee.tripod.com/projects/lightgun/lightguns.html).
In Magnum Light Phaser configuration, POTY gets connected to +5V when the button is pressed, and left floating when the button is not pressed.
I would also try adding a 1k resistor in series with the button, just to protect the integrated discharge transistor of the POTY input of the SID. You never know...
Although this connection makes totally sense according to both the C64 schematics and the Programmer's Reference Guide, please understand that I cannot verify this on the real hardware because I never had a Magnum Light Phaser gun and couldn't find any on ebay.

I see no button in the schematics. Is it OK to wire one between UP and GND?
