Can I ask about a PAL version? Sorry if I've missed something earlier in the thread. :)


Yes, a PAL version will be available. :)

Me wants one!

Hey serious request for Al....can we start pinning these topics? At least the ones that will ultimately go to the AA store? I'm sure you don't have a problem selling out on these limited releases, but this is the second game I almost missed (princess rescue being the first) because I didn't think to take the time to read all 9 pages lol!

Just an idea.

Cannot wait for the PAL version. I think it'll be a day one purchase for me along with a box for Princess Rescue... :)

Jan, thank you for making this game. It's nice to see the ol' VCS still can get an enjoyable game out of it.
I think the sequel, especially if some random-ness could be managed (with some help from our friends here) then that game would be quite incredible.

Congratulations on your release, I look forward to more!

Thank, you very much!

But what do you mean by

if some random-ness could be managed


What should be random?
I was once thinking about an "infinity mode" (in style of "Super Mario Infinity", i.e. generated levels) but I'm not shure if it is a good idea...

I think I missed something, is this a limited release only or will a cart and manual only edition be available?

I'll sell a cart/manual version when the boxes are exhausted. I'll be bringing a batch of boxed copies to the Portland Retro Gaming Expo as well.

I love how the box is as new, fresh and different as the game itself.
I just had to order this game with the box!
Just goes to show that even at 4K a fun game sells!

Got mine yesterday! Neat little simple game...frustrating as all hell though! I'm starting to dig collecting boxed games (homebrews only though) and the uniqueness of the box really stands out. The little bad guy (Tooby) reminds me a lot of the enemy in Marble Madness...(completely don't remember what he's called though).
Well done!

It's been a while since I've been on these forums, but I do remember when you first presented this thread. I must say, WELL DONE! This is a stunning effort.

Thanks for the love! And I really like that photo :-)

Actually, Tooby was inspired by one of the enemies in Giana Sisters.

Thanks! It was a lot of work though.

It's a great game, but I do wish there was a slightly cheaper edition. When that happens, I will buy it and record a proper speed run for Speed Demos Archive. :)

This game is screaming for a sequel.... "Blinky Goes Up Again" or "Blinky Keeps Going Up"

Not exactly a sequel, but at least a nice little hack:
