Good Morning !!!

Here is my little tribute to your game...

Brilliant!!!!! That’s why it’s worth making games like this to make me smile after another person plays with it afterwards. I was about 14 years old when I played with it on a commodore computer and I had exactly the same experiences as you. I had no idea what to do and I couldn’t ask anyone. Thanks to the internet you can now see exactly what to do. Unfortunately, the scorpion through the wall is a bug :( , but it cannot be fixed because GB-Studio sometimes malfunctions. When a sprite goes off the screen, the code it should be doing all the way through simply doesn’t work, so there are some nonsense in it sometimes. Again THANK YOU so much for this video, I really like it and it is very demanding, eye-catching. just keep going and hope to see you in other games too. Thanks.

This is totally as I remember it when it was bundled with my C16! Great work, I’m going to keep coming back to this one.

I'm so glad it brought your memories back., I had to completely redraw it to fit in 16x16.
