Player's Review

Originally released for the Amiga in 1989, it is fondly remembered for its music although the game it self was a bit ..meh largely thx to its difficulty and drab colour pallet. It was ported to a couple of other systems including the mega drive and the Master System in 1992. Cartridge games always come with the risk of buyers remorse especially at the cost of 29.99 per cart, the game had better be good....... This port of the game is not great and you would have felt pretty cheated.

The game features only 6 of the 7 original levels and loops round at the end of level 6 without offering to buy/sell anything at the in game shop. The game is still difficult and made more so by not being able to see enemies and projectiles when the action really hots up as its just too much for the poor master system to handle. Im not sure, but in other versions you cant take money between levels with you so its best to spend it all each time you get to the shop. However here in this version it does 'seem' to stack. The shop does not offer all the weapons from the original game regardless of how much money you have.

The video shows two loops of the game as I played through just in case it ends after 2 runs. It doesn't..... so i just end the game in loop 3. The pc version does similar but the second loop is harder.
