WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR

What's not to love about another columns clone? :-)

Not a great deal to say on this. The manual protection was somewhat interesting,
as incorrectly cracking it leads the game's palette being messed up (at least
one version on TOSEC isn't properly cracked!).

There were lots of triple NOPs throughout the code in an attempt to wait after
every blit, but that doesn't work on fast machines, so in go some proper blitter
waits instead.

There are no trainers, because the game doesn't need them!

Enjoy!

Greetings to Codetapper, Wepl and all the WHDLoad team!
