I really love Chris Kerry's early graphics, both Jack's trilogy and this Monty's episode are quite cute and colourful. But boy, they are reeeally frustrating to play. Chris never got around resolving the collision detection and color clash of his games, and they turned out to be some of the most annoying games to play on the Speccy.

This makes it an awful experience and spoils what could have been such a wonderful game. Graphically this is my favorite game of the Monty series, but as a playing game it's simply annoying and frustrating, and the worse of the series by far.
Still this is a fun game to play if you have the patient of a saint or infinite lives. Yup, no other choice, I'm afraid.
