Retro gamers rejoice once more! Pitfall Jones published his latest game, XOR, a port of an 8-bit game made by Astral Software back in 1987 for computers like the BBC Micro, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum. The object of the game is to pick up all the masks in the maze. That sounds easy but it can get devilishly difficult on later levels! Forum post and ROM are here.
