I say, m-crew, Rev, Wolfy, and all of you derailing this thread must follow Eric's lead and go to all the other Intellivision Revolution release threads and post the exact same comments.  It's only fair to keep it balance.

 

I mean, what about all the other people who don't care about Jawcrusher?  Are they just supposed to miss this saga??   :P

Question Rev , Didn't the Atari Version have 9 rows of dots , correct me if I'm wrong because I don't have the Inty version yet.
But it looks like there's only 5 rows of dots on the inty version.
Any reason for the difference.

Cheers Brother

Maybe the programmer had a Commodore 64 rather than an Atari.  There's an explanation of the different versions here.
http://www.dadgum.co...BOOK/HARRIS.HTM
 
The original Jawbreaker for the Atari 800 and Apple II were purely pac-man clones.

 
The Atari 2600 programmer explains that he felt pac-man couldn't be done properly on the 2600.  He came up with a horizontal nine row version.

 
Then different programmers were asked to do other versions.  Supposedly, they were given incomplete specifications that called for five rows of dots. [Aka Jawbreaker II on some machines]

Basically it takes the constraints of the Intellivision into account to get two color candies and as a result is really a port with extras of the Apple II/Atari 8-bit Jawbreaker II

Surprisingly to me it was the game I played the most at PRGE. When Rev first showed it to me a while back I was skeptical but I must admit I really enjoyed playing it. 👍🏻

I did not have a C64 and also not an Atari :) I got the idea primary from JawBreaker II which is a newer version for MSX and ColecoVision. Also watching the Apple II videos at youtube.

 

I added a few more things like the iron-bar which blocks access to other floor(s). The Bonus round, and the "switcher".

 

Please notice the multicolor for the dots and the powerpills :) "Super Graphics"????

 

The faces are build up by two sprites and the Jaw is two sprites too. So all 8 sprites are in use when 3 faces on screen at the same time.

Rev is currently being detained at a Target security office because of his recent suspicious behavior, so game orders might be delayed.

I never received a confirmation mail or order update since I place (and paid) my order for OREGON BOUND and JAWCRUSHER of 30th of October. I sent more than one mail and messages without any answer. I never received a shipping notification with tracking number, maybe I have to open a PayPal claim? 

 

Someone can update me about my order, please? Order details and PayPal trans ID in PM

Glad to read you update. Since I havn't received neither any order confirmation nor answers to my past messages (mail and contact form) I didn't know anything about my order status and I was starting to bve a little worried about.
 
No problem at all to wait for the order to be shipped and delivered now that I have a status update and I know that my order has bedd correctly received.
 
Thank you.
