What a surprise! I had this game in a '16 in 1' cartridge for GameBoy.

Karoshi seems to be getting a hang of this secrecy thing as well Smile

Actually, it wasn't about secrecy at all. The thing is that Karoshi decided to code this game just 3 weeks ago. Less than 3 weeks is quite a short period of time for game development.

Ok, I know that RNFF time frame was slightly shorter Wink

Btw pitpan, I tried to post messages on Karoshi's forum but nobody has validated my account. Could you validate it?
