The tree and the moon in the background are sprites. The reason they are missing in V1.3 is that I needed all the sprites for the Sqrxz logo in the foreground. Otherwise 50 fps scrolling in the intro would have been impossible with a 7 MHz OCS machine.
I could have added a parallax layer out of sprites during the game again, but then I decided to better spend the time on future projects.
That's funny. I had been wondering what happened to the moon, but then I got distracted trying to hop from bat to bat
