@grennouille: Thank you for the feedback. Sorry, though I roughly know the difference between PAL and NTSC, I've no idea what to change in order to code NTSC-friendly. - Is it possible at all to make code work with PAL and NTSC if you use $d012? I don't even have an NTSC machine, living on the PAL-side of the 'big pond'. Of course there is the possibility to emulate NTSC. But there are so many NTSC-Fixers here, if anyone of them wants to release an NTSC fix of this and is in need of any information or source code, I'd be glad to provide such.

My tunes are not so good, but i mean, there are really good composers out there. Ask them :)
And again. Hubbard and Ben rules.Thats it.
Nice game this!

@Fredrik: Thx. Of course yer right with respect to new composers. But this time I wanted it to be just as oldskewl as it is. Last release of mine worth mentioning contained Hubbard, this time it was Ben's turn. I always thought it was a pity that WEMUSIC was not used in a game. And I love that Jack the Nipper Tune though the game is not really my cup of tea.

Maybe I'll browse yer SIDs next time and ask whether I may take a tune or two. I remember there were quite a few of which I already told you they might be used in a game.

Have just tried this on my c64 and its fun!
Good work lads!
ANY new game deserve a new composed tune for it. Any composer would have been honoured to do a tune for this.
Ben did awesome tunes, but i mean. there are so many composers out there.
No, i did not say this because i compose. There are much talent out there.

I really like snake games, wicked Ben Daglish tunes, old-school style and straight-to-the point designs.

I've enjoyed it quite much, man! Very good stuff, reminding me of good old times :)

just finished the game.
score: 271720

it was fun but controls are a little bit rough and flickering score is disturbing. still it was fun to play, thanks.

Well, sorry for the delay! But I did not want to put a 60 or 80% release on the net, because I know that I'd never finish it then. This version is rather 110% in comparison with the party version.

Have fun
