Trivia

Some extra-special trivia from the programmer himself:

Heh, so, back when I coded this game on the PC (POE), I decided to do it in CGA because that was the widest audience back then.

The latest video cards back in 1989 that displayed EGA, could of course also display CGA. Well, on those EGA cards, I could change the color palette in CGA mode - a little-known trick at the time. So, for POE I wanted to have the bricks look as close to yellowish-brown as possible so i picked the colors red and yellow. I needed red for the blood, of course. :)
