I'm starting this thread to show Byte Knight's new homebrew that is close to being finished, Evil Magician Returns 2 (EMR 2). I have been testing this game for him for quite some time and it recently was put out for everyone to play, so I would like everyone in this forum to be able to see it. All you fans of the original Adventure will really like this game. It has some of the original mazes with some new twists and shortcuts along with a new castle. And that pesky bat is back! Also, it has a really cool ending, and there may be a hidden surprise or two to hunt down! We're hoping that one day this will be available to buy on cartridge here. So all Adventure fans should give this a try! I dont think you will be dissapointed.

That was my goal! Pac-Man-Red can do some amazing things with only an eight-pixel width...

Before you promise this game on cart, you should check with Al's schedule etc., he is the only one who can put this on cart. :) Good luck though, looks cool.

This is awesome! Definitely the best Adventure sequel I've played on the 2600 (and Ive played at least 8).

Excellent work! You are awesome.

EDIT: at least eight

8 + ) = 8)
