Congratulations BigEd...... nicely done, now do it again and prove it wasn't a fluke....and, get an even higher score.

We've seen it done folks so it's definitely possible.

Looking at Klintworth's screenshots, it's kinda funny that a game released in 2014 has Master compatibility issues :)

It's a pretty fun game. Here's a starter score.
