smkd is working on a “Thrust Inspired Game” for the NES. However here are the latest news along with a new binary:



I’ve had the ambigous front end pointed out before, where the guy suggested that the tip be colored differently. I passed on it, but that idea of making the base of it thicker does a great job I think. I updated the chr in my rom with that.
