This was sixth ReadySoft game
adaptation by me. First was very hard, then went pretty fast (as fast
as it may with 5-7 floppy games), because code is almost same in all
versions. All adaptations made from Pasti images.
Floppy reading part is pretty
complicated - partially because they made it so, that even users with
single-sided floppies can play game (with some parts missing, of
course). I'm just thinking why ReadySoft took care about it in 1991
instead doing STE DMA audio for instance - what would result in much
better audio... But all this is history, after all.
