Touch of the Reaper was created to make more interesting sprites for Pong-like games. The general idea behind Touch of the Reaper is that you play the Grim Reaper in a contest for souls. This sprite sheet was the first appearance of Grim, who now is a regular character in the PCopy! Comic along with Joe 6502 and Wingz. Grim also has a habit of appearing in tutorials.
