Any plans for sequel? 

I'm not much of a fan of sequels that look like variations on the same game. I'm currently working on a Wildlife sequel because I had an idea to do something different by keeping the link to the first game. I'm thinking of things for an FL sequence, but it should be a long time. My next game should be Haunted Woods (see video), which in my opinion is even better than FL and considering that the game also includes archery and maybe we should do a FL contest.

FL contest would be great.  I love that game.

When do you expect the Haunted Woods game to come out?

I've played FL a ton. FL and Astrododge are the best games on the system.  I have an O2, Videopac and Videopac+.  I think FL is best on O2/Videopac.  With the O2 being the best due to faster gameplay.

I don't think the Videopac+ graphics add anything to the game and I'm wondering for the developer if they take anyway anything due the extra space the graphics take up.  Does adding Videopac+ graphics force the game to be smaller and hence have less elements to it?  Could there be more monsters, lighting effect or different background sound (sort like Amityville) per monster battle, pause, stuff like that?

For those who have yet to purchase this game I highly recommend you get it, it is that good.

Thanks by comments Kiss
This week I started a new project. Initially I made a map to include some 20 screens. Yesterday was a holiday here and I enjoyed to work a little in the game. So I noticed, to my sadness that it would only be possible to fax 10 screens. Of course I'm working to extend this, but in general this is how it works, you start a project with a list of things you want to include, and then you start an exclusion process. Therefore, considering that some things have to be withdrawn, they end up being the most relevant ones. But the most relevant ends up being personal and when you can not put everything you want ...: animation or effects, sound? Pause or Screen opening screen? One more level or one more enemy? Personally, I like the graphics plus, I always see them as a priority. We will be launching this month, in addition to the Haunted Woods, the Boom Box, with the help of my mentor René (btw: Endenlands, where the game is played Forbidden Lands is a tribute to this Odyssey world icon), I could include in the game a background for each screen. And because it's cool, I think it increases the player's expectation of how the next screen will look. But, I think everyone has their priorities. By the way, I have not forgotten your claim to the pause. But as the Haunted Woods has a natural break and the Boom Box you can give a time when you want, who knows the next has no pause

For most homebrew games 4k ROM space is enough, so spending the remaining 4k on Plus graphics is not an issue. There a few ways to reduce the amount of space needed by the Plus graphics, which have been used a few times.
