Yah, Eckhard baby.  I don't think I've ever seen something on the VCS with such
large playfield "sprites" like this.  Bravo!  Good job!  I caught myself saying
to myself, "cool, Karateka" with a bit of a blasé feeling until I pinched myself
as a reminder that the window I was looking at wasn't a PowerPC 604/120Mhz 128MB
RAM machine, but a scrappy little 1Mhz 6510 with 2k of memory.

GOOD JOB, Eckhard.  I too would second Ruffin's suggestion about holding the
joystick to move the character, as opposed to tapping it.
