WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR

Well this game certainly has some quirky behaviour! The "first person" shooting
levels can't be failed - if you die the game just carries on to the next level.
There was an attempt at a keyboard routine in the code that is ignored in the
game (even thought various text still says "press space" etc).
The game also has no ending whatsoever - when you reach the last level, the game
simply loops back round to the first level again!

Patching was pretty straightforward. Making the start level select meant mapping
out various points in the code to jump to, as every level is simply another
subroutine call rather than a jump table.

I've added a few other trainers. Given the number of sub-games it was quite
time-consuming to add too many so I've left it at lives, level skip and a 
couple of subgame-specific features.

Enjoy! :-)
