The 2600 version is quite impressive. It is amazing that it was even done for the system. Have you seen the hacks that have been done of it? They look pretty amazing and bring the game to a new level.
Yet more nonsense from GamesTM!The game actually has all the music from the arcade original and it sounds fantastic considering the hardware. It even has the separate music for when you get to fight Abobo!Yes you can spam certain attacks but the same can be said for most beat 'em ups if you are honest. The enemies only trap you if you are rubbish at the game.There are weapons you can grab and use so that also shows they barely played it.
I played it on the Nes, Spectrum, Amiga and Arcade, my favourite being the NES. There's just something about that version that works for me and recent play through all those version again confirmed it again.I am particularly fond of the helicopter section.
There's some vile stinkers in with that lot. Seems like the MD version is the one to go for, but the sound is weird. I'm sure they could have made it sound more accurate than that. The characters sound like they are puking up when you kill them in the god awful Amiga version.
Few ACE scores for you:ST ACE Rating 275 (they completed it on 1st attempt).AMIGA ACE Rating 298 (slightly harder, faster gameplay and smoother scrolling).
