Very well done! I was following the development of this on Twitter, happy to see the release hit the BBS!

Great results, a wonderful recreation of a classic.

Allowing Sam/Slick to go up is certainly a design decision...

I was always impressed by how the arcade original displayed and animated everything isometrically, and I'm equally impressed with this adaptation.

How far have people got through the "Adventure" mode? I've reached this level a few times, but no further yet.

Edit: got a bit further.

Great game! Sadly, I miss the chaotic music from the NES version.

Actually a really flip flopping good game!

Hey Paul, I just wanted to ask about the inclusion of Thing on a Spring from the Commodore 64. I haven't reached any level involving them, and just wanted to ask how it works (the behavior of it).

Hi @rrops_real. From memory (its been a couple of years), it works pretty much the same as the snake but can do huge jumps (more than 1 cube). You see the shadow of where its going to land and can vacate. Of course, without looking at the code, I may have just made that up! :D

Oh, sorry for the late post, but thanks! I'd love to see TOAS in a remake of his own game ;)
