Summary0003854: This game has issues with keyboard input: cursor keys + space do not work well
DescriptionGameVersion: english
SlaveVersion: 1.23 (27.11.2017)

This game has issues with keyboard input: cursor keys + space do not work well and often are unresponsive, especially when you keep cursor key pressed to move the ant and if you have to move+fire to push the dominos.
Moreover after a lot of key presses it becomes totally unresponsive, and even ESC and F1 stop working.
I wonder if keyboard handling could be fixed by WHDLoad, as you did for other great Amiga classics.

StingRay (developer)

The game uses WaitForChar() and Read() to determine the currently pressed key and changing that would mean a lot of recoding for almost no benefit which I'm not willing to do. Besides the keyboard works OK for me and IMHO the game should be played with joystick anyway. For now I'll close this
