The bin is done with missile graphics, the score with player and ball graphics
and everything else is done with playfield graphics.

I can and probably will do the falling stone with player graphics to give it
a different colour. That would have to be the same as the bin, though. But too
much funky stuff would confuse more than it would help, I think.

I also might try different colours for the rows. But I think I will just alter
between two colours, because the PAL VCS seems to have a different colourset
than the NTSC version. One with a lot more grey, wich is not that suitable for
this purpose.

So your VCS life program is on hold right now? Too bad, now that I have 
traded for a set of keyboard controllers, just to play your game. :-)

Thank you for your comments. I think I have enough to try out for the rest of
this year.
