I really like this. Looks, plays and sounds like an early spectrum game. It's strange that you get so used to seeing smooth sprites that a jerky game feels like a breath of fresh air.

Suprising to see it was entered into the BASIC 2020 comp. This compiled version plays great, but with several sprites on the screen, the uncompiled BASIC must be verrrry slow!

Difficult game this. Hope the author doesn't mind, but here's an immunity POKE:

I know it seems daft to play with immunity, but it's a good trainer that gives you chance to get used to the unorthodox jumping. I tried playing it again without the POKE and made a lot more progress. Doping works :mrgreen:
