I remember enjoying this game in the year of it's release because it had a similar feel to 'Ghost n' Goblins' or 'Rygar', and I loved both games. But it looks to have been made in a hurry. Keys are unresponsive, graphics are sometimes stupid (for example,when climbing), and the game itself feels short of appeal. I finished it in 3 plays, so its one of the easiest games I've played so far. Never saw the arcade version but I bet it was a lot better. In spite all that it's still very playable, only not as good as other similar games.
