NOTE: Current build is in Reply #30
In this topic davyK made me aware that the 5200 version of Kaboom! features a 3rd gameplay variation known as Pitch and Catch.
After some back and forth I decided to utilize DEBRO's awesome disassembly of Kaboom! (which can be found at MiniDig) to add this variation to the 2600 version of Kaboom! I believe I have this part working, but it's difficult to test by yourself. Let know know what y'all think.
NOTE: this is an early build, see top of this post for link to the latest version.

Changes so far are:
- Revised kernel to capture both paddles on every frame
- Revised game #2 to use the correct paddle value when alternating players
- Added game #3, Pitch and Catch.
I plan to add the sunset skyline and colorful Activision logo next, at which point I'll consider this hack finish and post the source.
