This was one of the best games to punch down to the 2600. It managed to retain like 90% of the fun and playability while still moving to the chunkier graphics.

I always loved the sound effects for Williams arcade games.  I think they used the same ones for all their 80's titles.

Sort of, they all had the same soundboards, but different Roms. They also used that board in early solid state pinball. I have a set of boards for joust, defender, robotron sinistar and stargate. I often test them in my Flash pinball

Wouldn't it be even better if voting laws were written in such a way to make it at easy as possible for everyone who is eligible to vote to do so?  There is no need for a date on a ballot for example.

The grey enemies (Hunters) could be stuck by the Lava Troll. (The red Bounders would get pulled down to fry, Shadow Lords easily escaped)

This could be exploited to farm pterodactyl kills.

there's an exploit in the original Pac-Man where you could leave mr pac in a certain spot, after making the ghosts do certain pathing, and you could walk away and the game would never end.

This is the republican focus on discrediting mail in voting biting them in the ass.

If they accepted reality and spent their time educating their constituents to fill out their ballots correctly rather than whining that mail in ballots are unfair to them they wouldn't have these problems.

It's ring jousting though: those wooden structures have little rings dangling from them and you have to ride through and catch them on your lance.

It was just added to make another excuse to reject ballots.  Like "you didn't sign it correctly". In Oregon, your name is printed above the signature line and you sign it the same way, instead to trying to guess how you did it 25 years ago.  Non-trivial: my ballot has my full name, my wife's is just first and last.
