Seems that it was just a bad mastered disk. There are original disks working correctly. The correct working disks has the track 20 unformatted. The non working one has track 34 unformatted instead.
This was a "translation" of an Apple game. Truth is, there was very little of the code from the Apple program. Looking back, I wish I would have given a one or two player option.
Great, addictive game. I agree with the others who said the controls could be VERY touchy and unforgiving, but the gameplay was worth the aggravation. A very colorful and mysterious world to explore. I think I finished it twice.
This game can be frustrating to play as it is extremely difficult to time the button press to complete a pass. But once I devised a sucker play that the computer could not defend and would allow an uncontested touchdown if you did complete the pass, I was able to crush the computer opponent. BTW-if you score over 99 points, the score rolls back to 00!
Yes, this was their worst selling game. However, the 1.3 units was obviously a joke, especially since it was right after the proclamation of the highest selling game at 1.3M units.
Super simple, but a lot of fun. I had a better time with this game than many Atari 2600 cartridges.
Paradox is a german PD game, made by one or more Abbuc members. There is also an english version of it available, but it still shows the pictures with some german text in them here and there...
