thanks a lot for watching mate i'm glad you enjoyed it - it's a great game. deceptively simple but really fun to try and push your score to the next level ! great, abrasive sound, too. i like atari 2600 shooters a lot as the blasting noises are usually really earthy and meaty :-)

The biggest issue is the limitations of the console itself. If I remember correctly, to add another Sprite on that level would cause the monster truck to flicker as it is already made out of two sprites on its own. The kids are right now built into the playing field, which is why the ramp has a brown line (hair) instead of a red line. I tried to make it somewhere between red and brown.

it's amazing, mate. i can see them clearly - in my mind ! sometimes i imagine that the truck is the size of a giant shopping mall and that there are thousands of kids composing that line ! i've been playing it for about 7 hours now - it's extremely addictive !

with regards to making the kids look more "kid like", how about just stick men and then we could use our imaginations to imagine they're several deep rather than just a line of 10 or so ?
