    Author's speaking

    of Mathematics and Natural Science in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia. For

    This game contains 240 bytes of code and 16 data bytes. There is 
    no self modifying code. In fact it is removed since the better
    (i.e. shorter) solution is found for alien 'AI'. The BSR/BSF 
    instructions were swapped in order not to shoot always from the 
    same position (upper left alien). There was a bug introduced
    so the bombs are now falling all over the sky. Sound 'fx' are 
    pretty obvious - just flush some garbage (missile y position) 
    to the speaker port.

    Program was coded during January 2-8 1997. 

    There is a bug (feature) list:

    1. In upper left corner missile and bomb appears (when x/y coords
       are 0/0)
    2. Player can go out of the screen and shoot from there
    3. Every time player shoots, 'invincible alien ship' drops bomb.
       (undefined SI value)
    4. Upper left alien is getting 'killed' when there is no player 
       missile, but due to formation shape this can not be noticed.
    5. Bomb is not appearing always exactly below alien.

    Thank you all.

    Enourmous amount of thanks goes to Norton Disk Doctor for rescuing 
    source code after sudden blackout.
