"10 Incredible Ways 64 & 128 Owners Use Their Machines!" included a woman abusing a local radio station lottery by using a VIC-20 to check for winning numbers within 30 seconds... not bad!
Interesting game cheat bonus program "Sprite Killer" letting you turn off sprites in other games (often a useful way to cheat in games that depend on Sprite collision detection) and adding a pause function.

Anyway this game loses almost all of the kinetic, frenetic joy of its source material. The protective fortress of the original game's big baddie has been moved to be a central band (akin to the static-y safe zone of the original) with its columns of tiles moving alternate directions... tiles you have to grindingly sit and blast through with your peashooter canon. Yar's ability to kind of enjoyably 'chew' through blocks is gone- these tiles are deadly to the touch. Control is a bit Asteroids ship-y (though with more friction) except, like Rally Racer, terribly disappointing in that you only get the 8 compass directions. Small little saucers come out to harass, but they move slow, at least on the first few levels which is as much as I bothered with. Rating:2/5
