Object of the game: Collect all the coins in the maze and find the term paper to collect points and advance to the next level.
Controls: Move with the disk and fire chalk board brushes with action button.
Objects/tasks: Collect chalk board brushes to keep your supply up. Collect keys to access coloured doors. Use secret doors to appear elsewhere in the maze. Use green elevator door to advance to next level after you collect the term paper and all coins. Use green side doors to enter other areas of maze. Hit wall switches to open hidden doors.

Please be aware that your game will not ship until the first week of April 2014, after sales have closed.
 
Currently, we have 100 circuit boards set aside for the creation of this game. Availability of boards is very low at this time, and it is unclear if we will be able to source more boards before the end of March. Therefore, in order not to be disappointed, do not wait.....first come, first served! Order as many as desired....no individual limits.
 
Order with confidence that your game will ship in the first week of April 2014. This is brought to you by the same people who are behind Elektronite published games, so you can be confident that your product will ship when we say it will ship!

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Yes, I understand he is still settling.  It's great to see this release coming, though.  Even if it is cart-only.  :)

That reproduces what's on the label very well.  Cool!

The game enhancements are being worked on right now. The high score save function is in, and we are working on allowing them to be erased and brought to factory specs by the user. This will only be the second Intellivision cartridge to feature game saves.

Get your orders in before March 31, 2014. The game will NOT be sold loose after that date, and the ONLY way it will ever see a Complete in Box release is if someone prepays for 50 copies, and that is probably NEVER going to happen.

The sticker has been sent to the printer and should be ready in a few weeks. (We are low priority)

The game is on track for shipping the first week of April. The game is paid for via PayPal, and is $40 US with shipping included, but $2 PayPal fees must be paid as well.

27 Days until the closing of sales for Old School. $40 US plus $2 PayPal fees (shipping included World Wide) email gamesforyourintellivision@hotmail.com for information on how to pay via PayPal. The game is on track for shipping the first week of April. Don't miss out! The cartridge only version of the game will NEVER be available again, and a CIB version is very unlikely.

I think I owe you $2!  I sent the payment early on no knowing about the added fee.

No worries. I asked a bunch of people to 'pay the fees' as I have had the option when sending money to pay the fee or let the receipient pay the fees. However, most were sending as a 'gift' and then putting their address in the comments. A 'great' way to get your account 'limited'. So, I've just started adding the charge and showing up front that PayPal is NOT the 'most loved way to get paid'. Thee are (high) costs to dealing with PayPal, and I think that customers should be aware of those costs. $40 is for the game shipping included. There should NOT be a $2 charge just to accept the money. It is outrageous, but it is what it is.

OK, thanks.  Yes, it is crazy all these fees. Anything sold on ebay is hit by fees on Ebay and fees on PayPal, which is a major PITA.  I've seen some people use Amazon for payments but I'm not sure how that works.
