Zap't'Balls was released by Elmsoft in 1992, and is a conversion of the arcade game Pang. Elmsoft, who was an experienced coder of the demoscene used a lot of effects and tricks from the CPC demoscene to polish up this game. The game itself is known in two version: as "Zap't'Balls" that was originally released as a kind of a game demo on the coverdisc of the german CPC magazine CPCAI and as "Zap't'Balls Advanced Edition", the complete version with a lot of different levels. The Advanced Edition also contained an intro that originally was planned as Elmsofts part for the Cuddly Demo. It was told that Elmsoft promised a sequel if nobody would crack his game. Only a few weeks after the release of Zap't'Balls the french cracker Chany of NPS spreaded the copy of the game.
