Hope you didn't get the Asian Bird Influenza that is making it's rounds again. Not nice stuff. Yuck.
Thanks for support regards my health, it's funny how your priorities change when you become ill. I've had many bugs and viruses in my life but never anything as scary as this. Had chest infection so breathing affected, heart racing away out of control combined with breathing, plus feeling of doom / dispare... And no sleep for 3 days because of major migrane symptoms... I've had some sleep now so hopefully on the way to recovery...

Well done Gadget. How does one get to use it? with a lynx flashcard or is it only on the Handy? Excuse my ignorance.

You can use either handy or the flashcard.
So, I played the game a while and II think you should offer a manual along with it; there should be ones from the C64 online that you can modify.
Whzat irritated me at first was that I tried to move the character and nothing happened; before I understood that due to the game's time limit the walking from one place to the other takes time. You have to wait 5 seconds or so before the character is in the new spot. Since there seems to be no indication that the character is moving I would suggest adding something to the enhanced mode. Maybe move the sprite to the destination slowly, or maybe a pointed line from A to be that fills up point by point until the character has reached B.
Secondly, I don#t know what to do when I meet the alien. I picked attack but nothing seemed to happen. I tried to use the electric prod in slot 1, but nothing seemed to happen. The cat appeared on multiple occasions but the option to catch it did nothing.
I am also not sure if the airducts are implemented yet? I opened the grates everywhere but it did not give me an option to do anything.
Besides my problems of not understanding how it all works yet it seems to be an interesting game. For the enhanced mode I suggest having DerLuchs add some background music, with one channel free for voice samples if RAM allows it. I imagine it would be useful and cool to have a death scream when a character dies, this way the player immediately knows even if he has someone else selected.

Well, let's say this: There are quite a few aftermarket releases in the works, and the homebrew community in general is growing. But sure enough many of those games will probably get a card (or rather PCB-)release. Wyvern Tales, Green Little Quak-Quak, Karate World Tour, Space Ark, obschan's FPS project... maybe Lynx OPS too.
Yet there are other games available and in development that will probably not get a physical release. This one here, Pitfall!, Mortal Kombat II, Tiny Lynx Adventure, Solitaire, Poker, Clicks!, astle of Khon-gis and smaller games and demos in general.

I'd buy one.
What I might do with Alien is produce a limited run of PCB's. So, I wouldnt sell the ROM with the PCB, I would sell a PCB with a socket for the chip. Then if anyone wants LynxOps or Alien or anything else putting on there I will seperately sell the EEPROM at cost. This isn't as dodgy as its supposed to sound - if I can get PCB's made for like $10, and a socket is $1, it would be like $11 for the board, and however many $ for EPROM. ie. pretty much a profitless run of cards just to be able to get a card out there. In summary, the plan is to produce my own cards and for games like Alien effectively give the game away - only cost being very cheap for the PCB. Likewise, if someone else wants to do that themselves i've got no problem with it.
