The Key Game! At least that's what I called it. I seem to remember skimming across the bottom of the screen at top speed an awful lot.

This is about the 3rd game I ever played on Mac - after Mouse Stampede and Dark Castle.

An out&out arcade classic, in a very playable port... top marks!

It would not surprise me if Avadis went on to work for Apple. I understand James Thomson worked on OSX (specifically with the Dock?) as well as creating (and still working on) DragThing - http://www.dragthing.com/

Can we sue him ? A class-action suit for all the broken spacebars on Mac Pluses caused by this game ??

"Is this the same Avadis Tevanian who has worked for Apple on Mac OS X?"

I couldn't open the included docs file. In case anyone else has the same problem, here are the controls (found them on another website):

Tab and Shift = Up and down
Return = Fire
Command = Change direction
Backspace = Smart bomb
Space = Pause
Alt = Hyperspace
