Hi Manuel!

By the look of your progress I know what to ask for this Christmas :) Keep up the good work.

Thomas' idea of hiding the diamonds adds a nice touch to the sequence. How are you planning on ending it? Maybe like a hyperspace type of movement all of a sudden or the meteors just disappearing?

I see you've added the z-axis in too. This is cool. What are the chances of having the explosions move on the z-axis too? I hadn't played the original arcade game but running into an explosion could cause ship damage and an added obstacle to the player.

I can't hear anything with my current emulator setup :( I'll have to try it on a windows based emulator or my CC. I can't wait to hear what Paul came up with.
