Cue 'Left Bank Two'
And now here's some of the pictures that you've sent in, it's time for the Gallery.

I really like the vibrant anger in this picture, the use of the red marker pen that scribbles over the smaller pixel artwork is amazing. Hey, there's no number on the vulture picture, I wonder if the artist is trying to tell us something. Anyway, there's a prize for all artwork shown, but I'm sorry that we can't return them (just incase the artist becomes famous in a few years time and we can cash it in big time at an auction)

And cue Morph....

Didn’t know that, or I'd forgotten if I did, is that in a magazine somewhere? Perhaps it could be added as a comment in ZXDB.

In this case I prefer E-Motion, a rare case where rebranding has worked! I would have expected ‘Bob’s Bouncy Balls’ or something.

Just back from holiday...

No it's not in a magazine but I was the coder of the C64 version as all the 8 bit versions were done by us. When we started the conversions it was called Sphericule

Backed up here though

In addition, I do have the original Amiga and ST source code disks send directly by the Assembly Line that have a hand written "Sphericule" on the disk. I know they were extremely pissed off that someone messed with their title
