We've played this game for over an hour so far and out of nowhere we are now getting sprites on the red and green play fields that were not there before. We drove our cars into them and they are being detected as a collision.
They look similar to the guy that sits behind the castle wall in Warlords.
Do I have a defective cart that needs replaced?
You mean the one that looks sort of like this one to the right of the car?
That's right - we did not see these until today.
Is this normal? What is it supposed to be an oil slick? Is it toggled with a difficulty switch? That's the only thing I can think of since we had to change the difficulty switches for Jr. Pac-Man...
