Description
"CENTRIPOD" - SIDCARD VERSION - RELEASED BY LUCA/FIRE. CONVERTED ON +4 BY ULRICH HECHT. ONCE A DAY, SURFING THE WEB, I SPOTTED OUT HTTP //WWW.EMULINKS.DE/WORDPRESS/ BLOG, MAINTAINED BY HERR HECHT. I NEVER HEARD ABOUT HIM, BUT HE SHOULD HAVEBEEN A PASSIONATE +4 USER. HE CONVERTED TWO EASY C64 GAMES, OFFERING BOTH ORIGINAL AND CONVERTED ASM FILES ON THAT BLOG. THAT'S A VERY SIMPLE CLONE-OF-YOU-KNOW-WHAT GAME, APPEARED ON C64 UNDER PUBLIC DOMAIN LICENCE, RELEASED BY BINARY ZONE. THANKS TO ULRICH, IT HAS BEEN VERY SIMPLE TO IMPLEMENT SIDCARD. UNFORTUNATELY, I DIDN'T HAD SUCCESS IN FIXING THE MISSING SHOT'S SOUND FX RELEASE, BUG THAT WAS PRESENT IN THE ORIGINAL PORTING TOO.. WELL, I HOPE THAT YOU'LL LIKE THIS RETRIEVED GEM ANYWAY. IT'S TIME TO SEND SOME GREETINGS...

Cracktro Goofs
This is the original version of this cracktro.
In this first version, the tiny 'C=+4" tags bounce, and the starfield has all moving layers with 1px stars only. Under the big 'C' in the logo, char colors are badly set.
There are bugs in both flashings: the leftmost 2x2 characters don't go to black one the flash has gone, and the coloured flashing on the 1x1 text just below suddendly comes instead of phasing in.

The timeline for this cracktro is:
Attack Of The Mutant Camels 1st original version
Centripod 1st original version
Exploding Fist +5MD! 2nd version
Rockstar Manager +2! 3rd ultimate version
