Port of the mega-popular Amiga title, still heavy on the style and light on the gameplay. Tough as nails with little player direction. The TG-16 version feels particularly stripped down, even if it makes great use of the CD for music.

Amazing cover by Roger Dean (of Yes fame), that like all covers he did for Psygnosis, has absolutely nothing to do with the game.

Many of the enemies are oddly worth 37 points each, which coincidentally is 0x25 in hex. Did someone's BCD get mixed up?
