Looks really great! 
Not only the game itself, but also the size of the ROM. Now I 
must make a 64K game to get my record for the largest 2600 
homebrew back. :-) Or maybe I should go for the smallest one

Maybe you could just change e.g. the vertical position of the 
horzontal indicator be one or two lines when it's centered.

I'm afraid, I'll never see them all. ;-)

That's working really nice now.

You are right. I still stink at the game on z26. :-(

That's a very good feature. Now I can press the button just 
before I loose another live and hope some miracle might save 
me. :-)

I would need one every 10 points to get through. :-D

Hah, I'll hack the game, so I can beat you! :-)

BTW: The death animation (including sound) is also new and 
works very good.

Have fun!
