What an amazing find. How this gem wound up at a Goodwill is just beyond my ability to understand.
As said in the video, here it is 2011 and we're _still_ finding prototypes. I will watch closely for a reproduction, extremely cute little game!

Hopefully a dump of this will be released some day. I have my fingers crossed.

Working on having some copies of this game for sale at Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2012 www.RetroGamingExpo.com . Not doing any presales.

That's pretty cool! Honestly, I probably wouldn't have clicked on this thread except my 3 1/2 year old has been playing Astro Grover on my NES lately. I picked up a few of the Sesame Street NES carts at Flea World a while back and while he doesn't really play games (I have shown him some NES & 2600 stuff, but he just pushes a button - he doesn't have the two-hand control yet)... except for this. He can play "How Many Zips" pretty successfully.

Carry on...
