Surely an above average conversion of a great arcade classic.
The Speccy version has it all, the playability, the cuteness, the addictiveness and even good sound, but somehow it fails on capturing the original version magic.
Don't know if its because of the ugly graphics (the game's biggest letdown) or anything else, but it gets a little repetitive after awhile, the levels start to seem all alike.
Of course if you only played the Speccy version I bet you surely had lots of fun with it.
