A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR:
This game was a hell personified to fix. The Rob Northen Copylock was a
breeze - no complaints there. But this game has some really badly coded
routines. I can only think to name this stuff the Screen 7 Syndrome.
You'll see why when I release my High Steel install (another Screen 7
"quality" title) later ;-)
Thanks to Codetapper and Galahad for our discussions about the possible
problems behind this game - in the end it turned out to be something
completely different - just goes to show what a little perseverance can do!
The actual game isn't all that bad, a light shoot-'em-up which doesn't
really reward a great deal, and is certainly no Silkworm/SWIV, but a
short diversion nonetheless.
Greetings to Codetapper, Galahad, Wepl and the rest of the WHDLoad team!
