You need to get a gun first... I had the same thought ;)

Can someone try this on the real hardware??

Yeah - let us know if it works okay on real hardware - that would be great . . . :)

get your gun, then get the key etc . . . similiar indeed to adventure . . . superb game to be honest!

ok yeah top left lol.

Is it unfinished though? Kinda pointless after the first level... you dont even need to get any more keys.

It's coded from scratch, not a hack.
There is a final rom floating around.http://www.atariage.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=168698
Carts are being produced in limited numbers.
A conversion to PAL is being worked on as it is NTSC only at the moment

The NTSC version is already in its second lot of printing. The first batch has just a regular sticker on the front, the re-prints have a silver rim around the sticker. I'm sure there gonna' fetch a pretty penny one day!
