Developed over 2 months, this Nes ROM stands as a reinterpretation and tribute to the original work. Aimed at both players unfamiliar with the full game who want to learn what it’s like, as well as veterans that need a fix of new puzzle panels to solve.

  • 32 puzzles with various rules to discover
  • Overhead world with 4-way scrolling
  • 16 full screens of map to explore
  • NROM based hardware, no mapper necessary!
