When I downloaded this (or got it from a friend - I forgot), I expected...well, just another game. What I played was very well-done and innovative. The known bugs are, like the readme says, hard to run into accidentally, except the one where the breaker hits the border and the game crashes. That could stand some fixing.

Graphics: 8/10-Very good for a BASIC program, the phaser is awesome. The beginning screen is also well done.

Controls: 9/10-Simple when you know them

Gameplay: 8/10-Strategy is important, and psychology versus your friend is just as important. A problem is that only around 100 moneys appear, maybe money appearing every few turns could keep the cash flowing and put pressure on players. This could be balanced by greater costs for weapons.

Overall, this is a very good game for its size and is worth a download.
