MAME Info:

0.33b6 [Mike Balfour]


- 0.36b14: Added sound1 rom ($100 - timing).

- 0.35b1: M.C. Silvius added high score saving to Lizard Wizard.

- 0.34b1: Added sound prom.

- 0.33b7: Added color proms ($0, 10).

- 0.33b6: Mike Balfour added Lizard Wizard (Sunn 1985).

- 2nd November 1997: Kevin Klopp dumped Lizard Wizard. Okay I used a cutoff saw to trim down the Epoxy block & used a blow torch to melt away most of the goo. From that I wired up an adapter that the 40 pin ribbion cable plugged into, grabbing all the Address & Data lines and reading the whole thing as a 27512 format EPROM. There are 2 2732 EPROMs in the epoxy block. I refer to them as WizA and WizB. When I read the whole thing, it appears that WizA is at $4000 and WizB is at $5000, somewhat different from Ms Pac but that may have something to do with the other circuitry that toggles them. The other circuitry consisted of 2 chips, one a 74ls32 with only one gate used. The inputs were A15 and MREQ but for the life of me I could not find where the output went. The other chip I cannot ID, they are using it as the select (Chip Enable) for the 2 ROMS. The mystery chip has inputs of A12 and MREQ but I did not find any other inputs (seems like the ouput of the 74ls32 would be here?).


- Help free the people caught within the planet Zyfus.

- First you must shoot the erupting rocks or they will burst into flames and be eaten by Lizards for fire.

- As the people arise each must be rescue to planet Zyfus or the Lizards will enslave them against you.
