recently discovered version of Rockball appears to be the same
as the cartridge labeled Final but has a lot of code at the
beginning of the rom zeroed out. It is currently unknown
what this missing code does, but the game appears to play
exactly the same. Although Joe Hellesen's name is on disk,
he is not the programmer for Rockball. This disk is
thought to be his personal copy of the game.
the disk says 2I in corner? This was part of a version
numbering scheme that the programmer used. Each revision
was given a letter from A-Z and when he reached the end he
started over but added a number in front of the letter.
Although this means that version should be from 7/14/83 it's
obvious a much later version. This is due to the disk most
likely being reused.
Sometimes you have to go
chase down the rockballs yourself
