Trivia

Message from the authors

ZX Spectrum image of the game contains the following hidden message from the authors of the game:

STATEMENT:
Due to the initial bad design of this program the programmer wishes to apologize for the lack of sound which is due to memory restrictions. To make up for this lack of sound the programmer suggests one of the Prince albums to be played in the background at a large volume.

HACKERS:
Due to the size of the game you may find it hard to hack without overwriting a part of the program with any kind of dissasembler you may use and you will also notice there is no way any room for basic. To overcome this problem you may erase the bottom part of memory (5B00-8000) as this is purely graphics and when any alterations have been made they may be re-patched over again.

Thank you for buying or copying this game and I hope you have fun playing and hacking this game and I hope you find some good pokes for it. Yours sincerely Stuart & Dawn.
