I'll likely employ the B/W switch as a NTSC/PAL switch when I've got
the game logic finished. It shouldn't be that hard to impliment, although
a PAL user will have to tell me how the colours look. The clock will also
have to be different in the PAL version as the second counter will be
updated every 50 frames instead of 60.

Now that's got me stumped. There shouldn't be any PAL problems with the
joystick. Well there was one bug with the joystick I've got to work out
and that's having it change the variable right when the joystick is pressed
not only after the delay.

But if you hold the joystick in position does the critter change?
