Reviewed the existing unofficial set, promoted it, and added two leaderboards.

Nearly all achievements must be earned on the default hard difficulty. Exceptions: "Learn How to Play" and the 3 Easter eggs which can be earned on easy (setting 3).

Good set. Bad game.

Pretty amazing game considering the hardware limitations and HSW was given only six weeks from design to delivery. If it wasnt for the annoyances of falling in the pits when you didnt want to, this would be among the greats of the 2600 games.

I don't disagree. Could have changed the course of history.
