This is the third game to use my (primitive) cross-platform engine that I've codenamed Lionel (no prize for the first person to work out the connection). This engine allows you to build character-based games for C64, C16, Plus/4, VIC20 and PET machines from a single code base just by changing one flag. Video, sound, random number generation, input etc. is all handled by the library, so the game code just needs to call a routine or macro and (mostly) doesn't need to know which system it's running on.
