[abc80] A new game for ABC80 and ABC800 computers

When I do my cross-compiling, I do bin->bac format for the ABC80, the .bac
files can then be placed in a .dsk file and run from the standard ABC80
For the ABC806 I use bin->abs format, put the files in a .dsk image and run
them from UFD-DOS. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the ABC800 would work
similar to the ABC806.
I've written some small windows command line tools to handle the bin2bac
and bin2abs conversion. If you're working in a Linux environment, I know
that there's a perl script that can handle bin->bac, for bin to abs I'm not
