             T64FIX 0.1
*************************************

Released by:  Compyx

The github documentation says t64fix is a small tool to fix faulty T64 tape
images.  T64 images are container files used by the old C64S emulator by
Miha Peternel.  The 'tape' in the name is a misnomer as these files have
nothing to do with actual tape dumps, they're used as archives and for
storing memory snapshots in C64S.

*************************************
           KILL THE ALIEN
*************************************

Released by: Laddh

Ok, not very original, but playable all the same.  I still think it could
do with the user being able to move the ship up and down the screen rather
than just left and right, and some in-game funky sound track, but it is
competently written.  Use a joystick, move left and right and press fire to
shoot the alien waves.  Once they are killed you move onto another.

shows the graphics screen.  When the lightpen is held near the screen and
your VIC-20 can detect the position, MINISKETCH displays a cursor
on-screen.  MINISKETCH uses the MG file format.  You can load the files
into MINIPAINT to further refine and colourize them.
