Zintrick is a puzzle game developed by ADK in 1996 that uses sprites that look and act
like water droplets, hence the working title "Droppers" that it was originally given. SNK
intended to release the game on MVS format because it was officially announced by them to
be shown at the ACME arcade expo trade show in 1996. I actually attended this show and I
can testify that it was not actually there. However, it was released later that same month
for the NEOGEO CD system.
Although an actual proto cartridge has never been found, the game's rom data was extrapolated
and converted to the cartridge format by Jeff Kurtz and subsequently released and made available
to the community.
