As mentioned earlier you have completely nailed down the very heart of the challenge for this week, the 1978 Star Wars game let alone the SPIRIT of the Apple ][ itself !

My gosh did anyone else notice that he rendered the enemies using the same hardware dithering method the Apple had ?

Also the explosion of the enemy is as near as I can tell exact or very close to the original. What a tribute !

Incredible. Great programming and quite the challenging game to play.

Very much a gold star for you, @Yesyoor !
