Very, very good. You've done it again, Kweepa!
I was extremely surprised at how playable this is. It's quite the showpiece running on the unexpanded machine.

:shock: Whoa! 'The Keep' is pretty awesome for an unexpanded game. How about expanding the concept and using all 27K for an in-depth full-screen graphical dungeon crawler? I've seen some awesome capabilities coming from the Vic demos over the last couple of years and it seems like now is the time to put them all together to make some new "retro-classic" arcade quality video games. Just because the market died in '84 doesn't mean the classic video game era needs to end! The Vic has some of the best fast paced action games out there to hone hand-eye coordination. Anyone out there played 'Carling the Spider' released for the Vic in 2009? Wow, that game is an awesome platformer fitting in only 3.5K. That's the kind of gameplay we need in "retro-classic" releases. Bring 'em on! :D

Got to floor 137 - it gets quite evil after about floor 128 or so! Phew, that was a lot of exploring... :-)

Shaun.
