BIG thanks to the people who supported us (A>Z):

SPECIAL thanks to Krikzz (inventor of Everdrive flashcarts for many consoles you can buy at https://everdrive.me/cartridges/) and Goati who took time to do a test for me when I had no Mega Mouse.

LIZARDRIVE's visual identity was made by the very talented Gunpog.
