Never heard of it.

Back on topic, those that have the ColecoVision version that CollectorVision released (which was converted from the original Memotech version) should be aware that this game was written from scratch, and has more than enough changes to warrant buying it, including different level terrains, deadly water and caltraps, a special ending screen and new music that isn't in the originals.

COOL, thanks for sharing that.. Even though I don't own the Colecovision version..

Question:  Why does Mine-Field have a hyphen?  Shouldn't it just be Mine Field?

 

So here I am, quoting myself.  Nobody cared to answer my question?

Hyphen Use

Summary:

A comprehensive rundown on the proper use of the hyphen.

 

Contributors:Sean M. Conrey, Karl Stolley
Last Edited: 2013-06-07 09:00:40

Two words brought together as a compound may be written separately, written as one word, or connected by hyphens. For example, three modern dictionaries all have the same listings for the following compounds:

hair stylist
hairsplitter
hair-raiser

Another modern dictionary, however, lists hairstylist, not hair stylist. Compounding is obviously in a state of flux, and authorities do not always agree in all cases, but the uses of the hyphen offered here are generally agreed upon.

  1. Use a hyphen to join two or more words serving as a single adjective before a noun:
    a one-way street
    chocolate-covered peanuts
    well-known author
    However, when compound modifiers come after a noun, they are not hyphenated:
    The peanuts were chocolate covered.
    The author was well known.
  2. Use a hyphen with compound numbers:
    forty-six
    sixty-three
    Our much-loved teacher was sixty-three years old.
  3. Use a hyphen to avoid confusion or an awkward combination of letters:
    re-sign a petition (vs. resign from a job)
    semi-independent (but semiconscious)
    shell-like (but childlike)
  4. Use a hyphen with the prefixes ex- (meaning former), self-, all-; with the suffix -elect; between a prefix and a capitalized word; and with figures or letters:
    ex-husband
    self-assured
    mid-September
    all-inclusive
    mayor-elect
    anti-American
    T-shirt
    pre-Civil War
    mid-1980s
  5. Use a hyphen to divide words at the end of a line if necessary, and make the break only between syllables:
    pref-er-ence
    sell-ing
    in-di-vid-u-al-ist
  6. For line breaks, divide already-hyphenated words only at the hyphen:
    mass-
    produced
    self-
    conscious
  7. For line breaks in words ending in -ing, if a single final consonant in the root word is doubled before the suffix, hyphenate between the consonants; otherwise, hyphenate at the suffix itself:
    plan-ning
    run-ning
    driv-ing
    call-ing
  8. Never put the first or last letter of a word at the end or beginning of a line, and don't put two-letter suffixes at the beginning of a new line:
    lovely (Do not separate in a way which leaves ly beginning a new line.)
    eval-u-ate (Separate only on either side of the u; do not leave the initial e- at the end of a line.)

Maybe it was supposed to be Mein-Field, it is a foreign production after all. A Scandinavian / Canadian co-production can't possibly
co-operate across multi-national borders.

If you're going to be a pedant, do it right. It "should" be Minefield. One word.

I'm just gonna go ahead and insult 3/4 of the forum:

 

Explaining to an American anything that happens outside of America, hell outside of their own limited experience, is an exercise in frustration. They'll just respond back with "well *I've* never heard of it". As if that means sweet diddly. Congrats Francis, the outside world exists!

 

 

 

There. Now everyone can gang up on me for a change :P

Well, I have a corn field right behind my house, and I've always called it a corn field (two words, no hyphen).

i personally love to learn about the cultures and history of this world. Interesting fact: my biological father was named stalin marx until he was 15 and my grandfather changed his name because he thought it might be a part of the reason why he was a criminal.

If you do, come up here so we can warm our hands over your glowing-hot pyre, it was not much above freezing today.

With the amount of alcohol I was drinking earlier today, I think I'd burn pretty fast.
