Donut Dilemma is an original game I created in 1984 for the Tandy/Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 1/3 computers. It was programmed in Z-80 Assembly Language and featured low resolution 128x48 monochrome graphics and single bit sound.
In 1986, I created a Tandy Color Computer version. It was programmed in Motorola 6809 Assembly Language and featured 128x192 graphics in 4 colours with 6 bit sound. It sold commercially via Tandy Electronics stores Australia wide and sold over 3500 copies.
My Maximite port is programmed in Maximite Interpretive BASIC and features 240x216 graphics in 8 colours with 8 bit Amiga MOD format sound effects. It contains all 10 levels from the Tandy Color Computer version and supports the Nintendo Nunchuk and Atari style controllers.
