I wasn't even aware of the PlayStation version but that would make sense.  :)

No, I had never heard of it.  I'll have to see what the PSP version is like.

An updated binary file has been posted that allows for diagonal motion.  This makes the game more fun to play.  I'm attaching the updated binary below.
