Do you have any interest in releasing this on cartridge? If so, I might be able to help you.

Hi, thanks for the interest once again.

I would love to work with you, but I am already talking with a potential publisher.


hi, the game freezes on the SGDK screen, either on my brasilian megadrive or on gens emulator. Am I doing something wrong? I simply load the bin file, as I would for any other game.

Are you sure you pressed the A button to proceed?

When ever  a "!" is shown at the bottom right you have to press the A button.

This ! is used as a puase momment in the game.

I also just checked it out in gens 2.14 and it runs as expected.

Loads just fine via Mega EverDrive x5/MegaRetroN HD(clone). Feeling like Lieutenant Colombo taking notes with this game. Not a bad thing! My Schedule etc.

Enjoying it so far. Graphics, music, interface etc all seem good.

[edit]save slots working. :D

Well done


Thank you very much for playing the game and for the mini review.

The game was tested and on EverDrive x3 and with a tct-6803 clone and worked just fine except the quality of music. 

Initially I wanted to make it sound good even with clones but I failed.


interesting !


Thank you very much.
