Released in January 2000 as the sole game of Eleven/Gavaking, which went bankrupt shortly after.

A Snow Bros. clone, except you can control where the ball (of fire) goes. One of those single screen arcade games.

I might play more of it tomorrow and spend some time to beat it. What is there to say about this game?

Love this game. The atmosphere, the bosses, and the soundtrack all add up for a very enjoyable experience. It's not a difficult game to clear, so scoring is really a strong focus.

Given the late release date, it does seem a bit primitive for the time. Not surprised it wasn't a a big hit on release, but it's definitely fun for a round or two around this time of year.

I recently learned about a sound glitch that causes a scratch noise whenever you jump. Per @Niko it can be patched out by changing a single byte in the V rom:

Code:
260-v1.v1:
0x50820: 6E -> 08
Is this an emulation issue or even actual hardware?

I have a pristine home conversion of this. I have no idea who did it, and I don't recall why I took a chance on it.
Glad I did tho.

Fun little game that got buried due to being a new third party game on the Neo in 2000. Saw it once in an arcade in Vegas back in 2001, which surprised me.
