I didn't know until recently that Caverns was only 2K (since it wasn't gratuitously added to the title ☺️), so others might not know, either. It's amazing how much was fit in this game given the size.

Until we played it on the show again on Wednesday I forgot how much gameplay they packed into that 2K, if I had to guess I would have thought it would have been at least 4K!

Oh ok, all the completed 2600 homebrews are in one cluster.  I'll hunt for all the 4K or less games in there.   (Last year they were in folders)

100% agreed. Great programming which definitely deserves much more attention.

Thanks Karl G. Your Space Game 2K is so much fun and...even has 282 bytes left unused. Great work.

Wait...what? 

 

I had been calculating free space incorrectly. I'll have to fill in that massive amount of space sometime soon.  😂

Looks like we'll have to move Space Game over to the WIP category. ☺️
