"For web sideloading: simply upload the new zip file and your Playdate will automatically patch the game." I can tell you that it does not work in this way if you downloaded the game originally before February of 2023.

I felt like Bloom was a big breakout hit for the Playdate in that it was one of the only worthwhile homebrew games that could compete quality wise with the games available in season 1. I felt justified in paying $10 for this game with compelling characters and story. That was at least until I got to the ending. The game builds to what should be a grand finale and yet falls on its face with a rushed ending that in no way closes out the story arc for any of the characters that have been introduced. You really get the feeling that the developers ran out of time as the ending of the game was being made. I'm very disappointed in this game and no longer believe it's worth the $10 it goes for.
Loved playing this game on my C64 Maxi. Was finally happy to play this on my Ultimate 64, but when I select Start Game from the main menu, it goes to a black screen and nothing ever happens. This happens with both the regular crt image and easyflash image. Unfortunately I can't play this game anymore :(
Wonderful soundtrack! I have to agree with rumblerumble though, it would be nice if we had an option for FLAC tracks as well as the metadata for title, track order, album art, etc. Really annoying to have to manually process this so it plays right in my music player.
I think this is an amazing port, but it felt like it plays too fast for me on my TheC64 Maxi. Also the controls didn't feel the most responsive, needing to hold the direction on turns otherwise it didn't register. Maybe I'm just new to Pacman? I know the sound effects didn't sound accurate to me, but I'm wondering if that's just the SID chip?
