Actually, it won't work at all, because you can't draw the castles with a 
reflected playfield.  I played Smithereens last night (incredible how far 
o2em has come in the last year despite the code accident) and it seems I had 
forgotten that the castles get torn down with each hit a bit like the bunkers 
in Space Invaders.

It's somewhere on the AtariAge forums with a screenshot, but unfortunately not 
under a subject line that would make you think it was K.C. Munchkin, IIRC.
