    Chipmunk!!! Nope, I'm lost. I get what appears to be Galaga (just played it on the 20th anniversary machine - 50 cents!) and then I'm off the cliff, no matter what.


      I dunno, I managed to hit a barrel. The steering seems to be a little shakey.

      Update: I especially liked the use of $JAPH (more so now that I'm getting the hang of the steering.)

      Ok I got a Score of 332 in easy mode. Maybe I'll try for a better score later. Nice code turnstep!
