I'm note sure but if I remember well, Jason told me that the proto is still owned by Rick Dyer.
But I'm curious to know if that proto was really working with two directions only  Huh? It sounds very strange ...

Yes The Original Prototype (Blue Marquee) is Still owned by the Creator Rick Dyer, I had tried to prize this game from Rick for years, it is still in full working Order with its Original Wire Wrapped PCB, its stored in warehouse, The Early Demo DL had only a few Scenes, however there are a few collectors that Have the Proto Disc!! I have never heard about 2 way direction joy stick? Im almost sure this is not correct (My opinion)

Would have made the game 50% better (which still doesn't help much) because you have 50% less chance of dying at each move..... Grin Grin Grin

That's what I thought, thanks for your reply Jason.  Kiss

Maybe next time you'll speak to Rick, you may ask the question  Roll Eyes ...just to be sure at 100%  Cool
