Another short, but quite difficult, well-presented game from rainbird. The game is simple enough. Move through scenes one after the other until reaching the end. The controls can be annoying though and some pixel precision is needed to hit enemies and some tight timing when getting your placement right.

The C64 version of the game is not as full featured as the Amiga game but it looks the part at least. The mirror room is supposed to tie all the areas together but for some reason I couldn't find a version which worked correctly. I died a few times to show some of the death anims but it has the annoying effect of having to play a scene from the start. Annoyingly even though the game shows two lives left, it was in fact the last life. DSD v2 release played here.
