If this will work on O2, I'd like number 8, please.

No 23 please - are there any pictures or videos?
The title is actually pretty cool

The ROM works on O², so I believe the cart should, right?

There is a playable 12-level demo version here: https://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=3487.0  TedFoolery called the demo version a "Nice game." And he knows a thing or two about making nice games...

This newest version is 200 levels of fun with 9 skill levels, save/restore codes, and a game pausing function (because it'll take a such a long time to complete that you'll need to take bathroom breaks).

I just played the demo. It`s really an enrichment for our library.  It make fun to play again and again and again.

When this is your first Videopac game, then I can`t wait to see your future games! Many thanks for your work.

Some example gameplay of the tutorial and the first few levels of the game is now posted to YouTube's newest Odyssey2/Videopac channel, here: https://youtu.be/7ugFZP_xCrk

Also, here are some screenshots.

Yes, Spyrus is a fun game and also wanted to announce that we will soon have the Odyssey version!

This looks awesome. I really love the way the tutorial integrated in the game. Might be one of the Videopac games with the highest playing value and state-of-the-art game design.

btw, I was somehow thinking this should have been how the Changeling in Quest for the Rings should have been moved.

I'm in awe from receiving compliments from Odyssey2 programmers.  I must be dreaming.  Thank you.

And not to give anything away, but it's going to be a real nice set.  I'm going to be buying both versions, but then again I'm biased.  And since both publishers have other games in stock, I'll be adding some other games to my purchase to save on shipping costs.  By the way, Sandstorm is still available from both of these publishers...

Thank you so much.  It was a labor of love and I wanted to add in as many "modern" game features as I could fit into the 8K program without (hopefully) losing the feel of an old Odyssey2 game.  The tutorial was one of them, although I can't take credit for the idea, it was a suggestion I received on an early version of the game.

I based the movement off of how K.C. Munchkin! moves around, minus the chomping.  Now I'm wondering how K.C. would fare against the QftR dragon...
