Graphics Debris
Like in Suicide Run, Mission Mars, Cruncher, Knock Out and in Alien Attack, at memory $2A00, there are some graphics used in 3D Quasars.


Six Titles Debut
Quick Draw has been arguably released at the same time with Alien Attack, Cruncher, Knock Out, Mission Mars and Suicide Run in the very beginning of Solar Software: all the titles show a loader screen in the respective no turbo versions where all the six names are displayed.

As reported in Commodore Horizons 21, Brenda Shay talked about a routine coded by John P. Shay which was capable to convert the games straight from the VIC20 code, then she named exactly these six games.


All these titles have as original starting address $2100. All of the titles have been saved thru Novaload versions on Triple Decker series including some useless memory filled with garbage till $3FFF, although all these games occupy $1001-$3000 only, and starting from a code located in $2050 which awaits some seconds before jumping to the original starting address at $2100.

Quick Draw exists in three different releases: no turbo with loading screen, turbo starting from $2100, turbo starting from $2050 (Triple Decker 3).
Only on Triple Decker 3, Quick Draw turbo forgets to clear the screen at Novaload, leaving the Novaload string over the titlescreen.
All Quick Draw Solar Software releases show a BASIC string to SYS 4112 which remains useless.
