I agree with Console Compulsive. My first thought was Pengo. Nice looking game.

I don't know if the gameplay is similar to Pengo just yet.  I've downloaded the test ROM to see.  Just waiting on a microSD card so I can play this and several other games.

So, is it like Pengo?  I haven't been able to try it out yet.

I do not want to ruin your review but will say it plays like a free roaming Pac Man.

I won't do a review of it until it is released, so no worries.  :)

Great! I was just really curious but it is on a computer instead of the Intellivision. So I will be waiting for your review!

The reason for the delay in the release of Christmas Carol is that they discovered a software glitch that they are having to fix.  It crashed the game.  If all goes well, they should be ready for release next month.

Too bad about the glitch but at least they found it before shipping.

Well, they found out after selling them at CGE!  So, now they've had to devise a way to exchange carts, etc.  At least the number sold at CGE was relatively low compared to what they'll sell online.

I did not play much of the rom. I wonder if the glitch is present. At times it seemed slow but that could have been the computer or emulator.

Good question.  Quite possible.  You do have to do some specific stuff for it to crash, though. I can't remember what it is now!
