Very clever. I see the level layout has changed but this is most likely due to the limitations of the hardware. It might be a good idea to make the power up's a different colour to the coins for clarity's sake, but apart from that I'm pretty impressed to be honest. The Atari 2600 did have some ambitious games released on it like California games (which wasn't half bad tbh) and Double Dragon (which was just plain bad), but it was still a blast to play and even now I fire up the old 2600 emulator now and again and play my favourite 2600 game - Enduro.
