TRIVIA

Cloud 9 was originally supposed to be written by Dona Bailey (the coder for "Centipede"), but she left and Paul inherited it. Originally called 'Weather War' the original game concept had a plug in the bottom of the screen that the character had to pull to let the water out. This game unfortunately only received one weekend of play testing at one location before being cancelled.
