Thanks for that Tricky.
I look forward to playing this.
I also look forward to seeing an enhanced version for expanded beebs or even one for Masters only. When you're ready of course.
Cheers!

PS best played on a real been with a CRT to fully appreciate how smooth the game really pays and what the BBC can rally do when pushed in the right direction.

I've had a go of this now (quite a few goes in fact) and I'm impressed (again).
I love the way you've got so many colours on screen in Mode 1 again.

I have a few thoughts regarding an expanded version (if you choose to do one):
I've never played the official arcade version so I don't know what extras it has.
+ A 'Game Over' message would be nice, followed by a high score page.
+ A return to the Start/Presentation would be nicer than going straight back to the demo screen.
+ A 'Round 1' or some sort of game start message (and sound?) would be nice instead of going straight into the game from the demo.

What do you think?
Cheers!

All excellent suggestions and if I did go back to this game, I would add all of them in some form.
The biggest missing thing is speech.
It would be quite easy to add extra features in sideways RAM as no language or OS is used, the sideways ram could just be paged in and left. I may scribble on the first page (I can't remember ;)
If anyone else wants to do this, feel free, I'll give any help I can.
