Thank you for this Christmas gift Misfit!

Even though I didn't get my VIC for Christmas, playing VIC-20 games is a very "Christmassy thing" to me :D

Isometric graphics of this artistic quality and speed for VIC-20 is a dream come true.

My brother have bought the tape for our shared collection. I will be playing it on emulator as soon as it is released. I don't mind the pentagram but I am afraid that it will be as demonically hard as say Bertie the Ball...

Hmm.. point taken. I understand. Is it ok if I make normal version without symbols?


I don't want to inflict on your artistic freedom so I don't think I should say much more on the matter. If I choose to play it or not is up to me.

Not really a tape kind-of-guy. But would pay/donate for a digital release.

As Misfit pointed out you are supporting him by buying the tape. You will also get the digital download too. Alternatively press the donate button on his web page and maybe he will send you the file as a thanks ??

I am having difficulty with the game (Yes it's me). I find the life drains too quickly and die too fast. Any chance of a beginner mode where bumping into a buddy is more forgiving ??

Also are you supposed to be able to jump onto things? I have not figured out this maneuver yet.

Beginner mode would be nice, but all RAM is filled :(
and yes, you can jump onto things (but you have to find something :wink: )

The lifemeter drains fast, but otherwise I am pleasantly surprised by the moderate difficulty. Granted, I have not had the time to play much yet, so who knows what lies in store. Anyway, the responsive controls will assure that any challenges ahead will be a joy to take on :D

The pentagram was originally a christian symbol and only became "satanic" after anton levy stole it.

Well not really. We have 3k more and a disk multi-load could be possible ?
