    I released this in the Public Domain (I wrote this before Open Source was popular, or the GPL or I would have released it that way), so not exactly abandonware as such, but good to see it here and that it actually works in DOSBox! This was written on an 8088 (actually probably an NEC V20) in TurboPascal and I remember having some timing issues with the GameOver screen when running on a super fast processor i.e. a 286 :-) and in fact see that animation runs too fast on a modern system as well, where it actually was intended as a few seconds of color cycling.
