Palikat for Sega SC-3000

Hi all!

Here's another game for the SC-3000. This time it's a Tetris-clone. Why Tetris? Well, AFAIK there never was one for the SC-3000.

Palikat (Blocks in english) is a 1-player game only, controlled with a joystick. Steer to left or right with your stick. Press fire to rotate the piece clockwise. Pushing up on the stick will make the piece fully drop. Drop a little faster than the normal speed by pushing the stick down.

From the title screen you can adjust music volume, toggle sound effects on/off. You can also select your starting level. Each level the piece drops faster than in the previous level.

In the ZIP-file there are versions for both PAL and NTSC, ROM and tape versions.

Thanks to:
Shiru for the tile graphics, they look amazing!
Sverx's PSGlib plays the music that Markus Kettinen composed.
Sami Kettinen (Sammy138) made that cool cover art and physical stuff.

[edit]I noticed the game colors are different in screenshots. The hiscore screenshot is taken with Meka, the other with MAME.[/edit]

Here's a few shots of Sami's work. In case you're interested of a physical copy, give Sammy138 a private message here.

I think it can, I'll check when l'm at home.

[edit]
Ok, it doesn't use all the RAM SG1000 has. I put stackpointer at the end of RAM, that should do it. In the zip you'll find both NTSC and PAL versions.
