Another fix, I left in the too long delay I was using for testing.

 

Once we're happy these are fixed, I'll release my other games with this fixed in them as well.

Thank you for these updates and sorry for the long delay in testing them.  I tried these with my NTT Data and Epyx 500XJ joysticks and the games respond perfectly.  Not surprising really as the NTT Data is a great joypad and the Epyx 500XJ uses good quality microswitches.  When testing with two of my standard ColecoVision joysticks on two different ColecoVision consoles I still occasionally see the cursor jump an extra space.  This happens when I repeatedly move/release the joystick in one direction.  If I hold the joystick in one direction the cursor steps through each space perfectly.  So, the issue is almost gone but not quite.  That said, these are the best versions of the games so far 👍

Sorry @Under4MHZ completely forgot to test these, I'll get to them very soon.  Thanks @Aking for testing them - did you use a standard CV controller?  These seem to produce quite a lot of bounce and cause the most problem with the games.  If I use a nice microswitched joystick then even the first versions of the games work fine.
