[4] SPHEROID is a puzzle game set for commercial publication by Phoenix Ware during 2022. Planned features of the final retail release include:

- Brain-teasing gameplay consisting of 50 to 60 levels
- Ray-traced loading and end-game screens
- New loading and titlescreen music plus 4 or 5 in-game tunes
- Passcode system to skip completed levels (every 5 levels)
- Compatibility with all Amiga system configurations
- Option to purchase the game on physical media or as a digital download


TRIVIA: Due for commercial release during 2022, SPHEROID is a puzzle game that coder Andy Vaisey resurrected from his old A1200 in early 2022 for which coding began in 1995 (see original titlescreen HERE). Originally utilising AMOS Pro back in '95, the game has been recoded in Blitz Basic 2 with some redesigned graphics and new titlescreen/loading screen/in-game music.
