  1. Any chance to release the source? I know I’m not the only one who’d love a chance to port this over to another platform.

  2. Hey man. Is there any way I can play the game now that Flash is dead? I can’t find a swf file or any way to play it so far. This game was a integral part of the games I used to play as a child, and I would love to be able to try it again. Any help to locating the game is appreciated!
