What if a person doesn't own an LTO Flash? The rom can't be used by people with just an emulator? 

 

Correct!

 

ROM sales are for the LTO Flash Cart Only. ROMs will be encrypted to your LTO Flash Cart. Your ROM purchase will not work on other Multicarts, Emulators or other LTO Flash Carts.

Will you need the whole ID or just the first 5 characters or so, like when Carl was selling D2K SE?

So what's the dealio with this game?

Last weekend, Elektronite told me on Facebook "Look for the game sales to begin on Saturday February 16th, 2019 at about 10am PST." ..and now it's almost Monday. :( I hope everything is going ok.. I was really looking forward to playing this, plus many others I'm sure. Hopefully there's an update soon.

Hi everyone, 

Yes, there is no problem at all. What happened is:

The same day the game was released I was made aware that I should include support for both controllers, not just the left one :P

I added support for the right controller and all the cartridges had to be returned to the manufacturer for reflashing.

The cartridges have now all been reflashed and they are on their way to Naberhood games, so the shippings will start very soon.

I am sorry for the delay ^_^!

Thank you for your interest!

Is the game a two-player game?

No, it is not, sorry.

It was difficult enough to add all that stuff for just 1 player. a second player at the same time was impossible without compromising the quality and speed of the game.

As for a turn based 2 player system, there wasn't any memory left. 

Anyway you can compete against your friends for the highest score, which is recorded in the cartridge, and once you finish the game you can play it again with an increased difficulty to continue increasing your hi-score up to 3 times!

Thank you for the update. :)

Any news on Rom sales?
as tempting as a cart or CIB copy is, I think I'm just going to buy the rom, at least for now.

Yes, you can press the "1" button on the key pad any moment during gameplay to stop the game

I am not sure about that, I guess they will put them both on sale the same day, but I will ask the publisher.

out of curiosity, if it is only a one player game, why did it need support for both controllers? 

Couldn't you just say use left controller only?

Some intellivision owners have one broken controller or the other. 

Also it turns out that most 1 player games support both contollers and it is kind of a standard / mandatory good practice.

I just found out about this myself 10 days ago...

Some custom controllers, like a Nintendo or Sega modified to work on Intellivision, don't have a pass through on them to use an Intellivision controller at the same time. So the only way for someone with one of these custom pads (which are ideal for a game like this) to use a number pad, is with the player 2 controller.

I just received the reply,

I can now confirm that the rom version will be released at the same time as the cartridge version.

Just an FYI, when 140 carts sell we will print a box, manual and overlays.

Hope that happens. 🤞🏻 I think it's getting tougher to get to 150+ copies on the more recent homebrews.
