I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. LOCUSTS! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!

apart from jokes, what an incredible job! I hardly believe it's an Intellivision game

I understand others have pre-paid for this game already, but I wasn't privy to it back then to have done so. Despite this, I do plan to buy a copy of this when it becomes available. It looks amazing!

I'm still really impressed and it was worth waiting for.  I felt that there was a lot of work into this game. I wasn't really paying a lot of attention since there's many other things in life that I can pay attention too.  So, I'm happy to preorder this game.

 

In a few months the cartridge with this game will come in a baggy full of goodies(J/K[hmm it could happen :ponder: ]) and I'll stuff this game into my Coleco Chameleon err I mean the Intellivision Master Component's cartridge slot and play this game.

Just a slight correction to your description: its the MOBs that are in background mode and not the text.  The font is always drawn in the foreground colour (using colour stack mode) on the HSC league table screen.

 

 

Although the additional technical detail is welcomed, I believe he meant that from a less technical perspective:  The text is drawn on the BACKTAB (i.e., the screen background) but it's the MOBs that appear behind them.  In other words, the first assumption people made on seeing it is that the floating text in the foreground must be MOBs, but they are in fact "drawn in the background" as it were.

 

Anyway, clever trick indeed, and very impressive in practice. :thumbsup:

Amazing. Seems more playable than Space Hawk.

 

Hope that you will have enough xtra copies. Pre-orders closed 4 year ago. I was not even collecting at that time and there is a lot of new comers since.

 

Cheers

Thanks for the compliments.
 

Hope that you will have enough xtra copies.

Don't worry, there will be more than enough copies to go around.
