This 5200 version has some small changes made from the A8 version:  they added a logo at the beginning and fixed a small bug related to the new hi-score text on the game over screen.

Thanks for posting this TrekMD. You know me, lover of all things 5200, and shamefully it gets few new releases these days. This game looks sweet. I downloaded the ROM, but don't own a 5200 flash cart (yet). If I recall, Al does custom cartridges if you supply the ROM and label art. I would just need to ask permission from MaPa, but cannot log in over there to do so. Maybe a flash cart is in my future after all...

I think this is only intended for use with flashcarts.  I'm not sure there is a cart release planned but I'll keep an eye on it.
