Yeah, but the zip was still too big.  I had to zip it again to squeeze a few more KB out of it.  ;D

Oh. I think overall file size is 1mb.  Aaaand. The comp's over tonight. Get ready to pick a new game.

I was tempted to pick a game I can kick ass in, but then I read Bubble Bobble suggested in an earlier competition.  I'd be interested to see what people can do with that.  :)

Is it Bubble Bobble then?

Quite like that, but hopeless at it, even with the power up thing at the start.

My suggestions would be:

Track n Field (joking)
Last Duel (I love that!)
Metro-cross <-- Awesome addictive, never played i when I was younger!

I played it a lot in the arcades from '86 to the mid 90s, and I got good enough to reach area 5 or so.  I even tried to buy a cab of it but I couldn't find one.  When it came out on MAME I played it a lot.  A lot of reflexive memories came back which made playing easy.  I could easily finish Wonder Boy in Monster Land so I was determined to finish the original Wonder Boy.
I put together a Wonder Boy web page with everything I knew about the game, including all the secrets and panoramic screenshots of entire levels. 

I just spent some time watching your INP.  You are a ---Bad words, bad words, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when saint censors you?--- ninja at this game.  I kid you not, your performance made me motion sick.  Very well done. 
THE SYSTEM          Popeye

Thanks!  :)

I choose Bubble Bobble for the next round.  I'll start up a thread for it.
