 Never heard of this game until I saw a bug report on the Mantis
 bugtracker for it. I checked the old patch and it only supported
 a cracked version so I made a completely new patch from scratch.
 Protection was quite OK for something that looks like a budget
 game. The first loader was decrypted using a (rather simple) trace
 vector decoder, disk format is long-track MFM (coding the RawDIC
 imager didn't take long) and there was a quite useless track check
 in the game as well. Coder tried to obfuscate the code but well,
 if you spot something like:

 move.w #$d333,d2
 add.w	#$7156,d2 ; d2: $4489

 you immediately know what the code is doing. Quite another wasted
 effort in my (not so) humble opinion.


 I have added a few trainer options which can be selected in WHDLoad's
 splash window. If you select in-game keys the following extra keys
 can be used:

 I: toggle invincibility
 1: toggle unlimited lives, player 1
 2: toggle unlimited lives, player 2
 N: skip level
 
 Please note that high-score/progress saving is disabled if any
 trainer options are used.


 Not much more to say here, enjoy the game from HD.
