Cracktro Goofs
This is the second version of this cracktro.
Here the tiny 'C=+4" tags waves instead of bouncing, the wrong char colours have been fixed, and the starfield has a non moving layer with bigger stars in perspective.
As for the original version, 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.
Plus, this new version has a bug that breaks the textscroller's wrapping on.

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
