Sorry, I’m stuck

«When I was growing up in the former Soviet Union, I had the luck of owning a PC. It was a good old 286 box with MS-Dos and Norton commander. It had a few games here and there, one of which was your brainchild – Supaplex.
Oh, it kept me glued to the screen for hours! I could not stop “eating the ribbons” (that’s what I used to call Infotrons when I was twelve, haha). One time I even feigned getting stuck in an elevator so that I could skip school (with a note from the maintenance man who verified that I indeed was stuck) and continue playing the game at home.

Years later, when I tried to re-download all of my favorite DOS games, I could not find Supaplex because I could not remember the name. So, I wrote on a Russian forum, asking if anyone knows of a game in which “a red ball goes around green screen eating sparkles and avoiding flying scissors and exploding floppies”. Et voila, someone almost immediately wrote back “You must be looking for Supaplex”.
And just as I did in my kid years, I returned to the Supaplex addiction. I haven’t played in a few years – university and all, but I’m ready to take on the “ribbon eating” challenge again.

Thanks a million times for creating such an amazing and never tiring piece of game art.»
