This would result in 5*3 = 15 pixel wide squares.

This would result in 6*3 = 18 pixel wide squares. But they are 
16 pixels wide.

Yes, that should work, though you'll also have "blocky" 
diagonals, will still be limited to n*3 wide cubes and you will 
have HMOVE blanks (which the original has not).

Ouch! :-D

Hey, Curling for the 2600! What a thriller!!! :-)

Have fun!
