Wow! Now that's a great christmas gift.
I got it up and running. Real cool stuff.
For you MAME-users: I made a marquee to complement the game.
You can find it here in the attachment.
When cropped to the proper size, you just lose the icicles. Enjoy.

As an anecdote to what John just posted, you can "read" the direction a barrel is heading as it goes down the "funnel" within the first few frames it crosses over the edge, also, from my experience the steering point is a few pixels before the barrel reaches the edge.

The red and green lines show the relative deviations in the steering paths. A barrel wrapping back toward the side it came from (red in this image) will appear to fall straight down as soon as it hits the edge, whereas a barrel headed the other way (green) will immediately move towards the center; because steering is not 100%, this is a good way to read where it's going and ideally be able to react in time accordingly.

The yellow line represents the location I believe to be the "steering point".

NOTE: My placement of the yellow line is speculative, based solely on visual experience, for all I know the steering point is a pixel or two in either direction, but it's relatively close.

Run away from the middle = steers barrels towards you
Run against the middle = steers the barrels away from you


Funnel/Barrel+Spring stage:


For some first time players the 1st screen might seem overwhelming - barrels all over the place!

The player actually has a lot of control over where the barrels go.  I'm not going to get super technical about it but the general gist is that when a barrel is just about to fall through the center gap between girders, the direction it takes is influenced by Jumpman.

If you push the joystick to the left, the barrel is more likely to fall to the left.
If you push the joystick to the right, the barrel is more likely to fall to the right.

This applies to both barrels above and below Jumpman.  With a bit of planning you can make barrels exit the screen, or recycle them back to the top.. Nudge them away from an area you want to cross, or nudge them into that area so you can score points jumping/smashing them.  Lots of control but it's difficult to mentally process the path of each and every barrel on the screen simultaneously.

For someone just starting, I'd suggest using this logic to keep the screen clear.  If you're aiming to point press - then keep the screen populated, keep blue barrels in circulation, etc... but the screen gets more dangerous as more barrels accumulate on the screen.

Thanks for some good options!  Was hoping to buy from another collector, but am going to hit up these other options.  Hopefully something shakes out soon!

I recommend trying KLOV.
