Well, apart from mine :-p I got every single sprite out back in 1991, including all the color palettes (heh yeah I remember the board supported 90-degree rotations of characters)
Yes it was complex; not only that but ripping the (multi-layer) backgrounds was difficult as (IIRC) they were composed from a tile-map of a tile-map.
Ah happy days...
BTW, thanks Ovale! :-)
