Ok, perhaps this is a good idea.

Yes, I found it by fortune. sound.c says "see copyright.h", but
copyright.h doesn't exist. :-( Dave said he took sound from koules, so I
asked koules maintainer. He said he took it from xgalaga *arrg*

I already have it ;) And I will incorporate your changelog in my, means I
start from scratch.

The same level I'm stuck :(

1) You have to wait. The enemy will be trapped and you can walk over him.
collect all games at the top in the ring. Then you stand upon the enemy
and dig a hole beside him (left or right). But then you can just drop
down, and the enemy is faster than you can jump on the floor inside the
ring. There I don't know further.

I should ask Dave about it.

You can even walk on the enemyys head, and so you can catch the ladder
group in the upper right. Tell me if you did more than I.
