Hi Thomas,

Cool! I wondered what a game like Surround would have looked like if they
did something like this. Using the ball as fill in instead of having the
"worm" move 4 pixels would have been a nice touch.

I agree with you. The scrolling is nice and smooth but I don't think the
trade off is worth it. It makes the game a lot easier IMO. I'd prefer the
earlier method of using the PF. I haven't tried this on the VCS but I don't
think the scrolling would be too intolerable.

Take care,
