Ghost Screen
Once a level has been solved, a screen with scores and other infos would have been displayed before the forthcoming level.
Unfortunately, that screen changes in less than one frame, occuring to a randomly partial or even empty screen instead, which is visible for a very short moment.



Hidden Text
From $1800-$2000 and $804D-$8100 there is "hidden text", which could be more accurately described as unintentionally included source code fragments. The text is German/English mix, including labels such as: "TotPointer" (Tot = dead), "MakeProzent" (Prozent = percent), "CheckHigh", "StartPic", etc.


Game Bug
This commercial release is unfortunately buggy. There's a randomly occurring bug which causes the "main enemy" to be completely immobile, and any completed area remains empty (no painting on either side).

Maniax Bug
In the above screenshot, several completed areas can be seen, but none of them were painted.


Once the bug occurs, the player is doomed to eventually lose the game without being able to continue.
