Player's Review

This game isn't really up to the standard of the previous CJ games and probably one reason it didn't get released. Its not a great game but if it was priced right say a 1.99 budget release it would have been acceptable. A fairly short and not overly difficult game. Ideal for the younger player or those that just want a quick simple game without the usual frustrations c64 platformers come with.

There are five levels with only the final one having a boss to fight and it can be a little annoying due to his firing speed compared to the rest of the games enemies. Upon completion the game loops and starts over while at the same time resetting your score, the cheek! You need to play a little more and lose all lives by the final boss if you want to appear on the score board. Each level has a bonus area hidden in one of the death floors. I've not shown them here but they are shown in the Jimbo video.

A second video is included which shows an earlier build of the game. The levels are not entirely built yet but the main difference is the inclusion of end of level bosses. Inf life and energy trainers are forced on so I pretty much just walk through each level. The final level loops over and over and the only way to end is to quit the game. The secret areas do not appear to have been implemented yet.
