This is a game I'm writing from scratch in pure assembly to hone my skills and try out some new techniques. It's not a 'pure' conversion, I just wanted to see how good an invaders game I could...

Re: Pac-Hack

that's nice to know, but to be clear, call it what you want in private, please don't refer to it as anything else because that will only cause confusion.
