Like father like son

«Dear creators,

I’m not sure whether or not you are still using these e-mail addresses but yet again I want to express my feelings about Supaplex.

Supaplex means so much to me. My father and I used to play the game a lot. Back then I was 9 or 10 years old. I was really obsessed with this game. I wanted to see how hard could the future levels be with all their fancy names and what happens if we could complete them all! Of course, I could not pass those levels by my own at that age so my father helped me with this game. We were a team and I still remember those good old days.

I believe that I was not a bright child, not good at maths, etc, but as I played Supaplex over the years obsessively, I feel that it developed my brain analytically. We completed the game eventually of course after a few years and I finally saw what happens after you complete them all (by the way, at that age I was expecting an ending animation like Murphy chasing scissors so I was a little bit disappointed with what I saw ;))

I believe that you Sirs, by developing such a beautiful game, made me a more analytical and more persistent human being. Now I’m a computer engineer and as a professional I admire your and other game developers’ talent. It should be such a hard job to code a game back in those days without internet, resources and hardware (I remember reading a story somewhere about your fit-into-one disk problem and Mr. Stopp had to test all the levels as code changes :)).

On behalf of every child/adult that you have contributed, I want to thank you! I really appreciate your fabulous work. As level 97 says: Good Job! :)»
