I wanted to say thank you to two EAB members that made this game possible.

@nobody - this game was his idea, he did the graphics, the game rules, the name, and he gave me someone to share ideas with throughout the development. Without @nobody this game definitely would never have been developed.

@saimon69 - did the music which I think in many ways is the soul of any game.

Thanks heaps for your help guys. I hope I will be able to convince you both to be able to work on a new game with me in the future!

So this is the final version? I noticed the credits page says version 0.73. Shouldn't it say 1.0?

I am not sure yet. I have to do some tests to see which of my ideas are possible on Amiga.

The final version was always going to be 0.73.something

7 and 3 are have a special meaning in this game

Like for example if people did 7 left and 3 right at the menu screen ? *cough* secret level *cough*

There is longplay on YouTube but maybe someone should play just for fun before watching.

The trailer is really professionally looking, and your web site is slick, simple and to the point, this is a great effort!

I have just gotten the ADF and will be transferring it to my 500+ in a few minutes.

Should I upload this to aminet ? I'm a bit out of the Amiga loop so unsure if that still something people do ?

Assuming people think it's worth doing, what do people recommend regarding the multiple versions ?

Upload 3 seperate versions (approx 150kb each)? or upload a single archive with all versions included (About 450kb)?

Any recommendations would be much appreciated.
