This awful! I do not think I have ever played the 2600 version. I have played the arcade, 5200, Coleco tabletop and N64 Namco cart.

The game is good. I just always remember Gorf, Phoenix or Threshold instead.

I have to say that I've found the 5200 version to be disappointing.  I think I rather play the 2600 version!

What I find odd about that is how much worse the MSX version is than the Colecovision, when they have practically identical hardware.

I love the 2600 version, it's absolutely superb.

There are a few versions missing from this video.

Firstly the Philips CD-i version:



And the Atari ST version too:

The Atari ST version does look great. Must finally be time for me to play the 2600 version.
