Commodore VIC-20

Amazing Maze

HIDDEN MESSAGE: The message THE NEXT SOUND THAT YOU HEAR, WILL BE THAT OF YOUR LOGIC BOARD MELTING DOWN: THIS IS THE PRICE ONE PAYS FOR SCREWING WITH THE MASTER is hidden in the code.  The message includes screen control codes, which would allow multiple color shifts, instant upper-and-lowercase changes, etc. Judging by this and 3 $EAs (NOP) found in the beginning of the code, it looks like there once was copy protection inside the cart which was later disabled.  Since Ward Shrake archived the code from a glued-and-sealed original cart, someone official in the company must have removed it.  {Ward Shrake}
