I used to like the C64 version quite a bit, back in the days but now it just annoys me to reach for the space bar to activate the power up. I really hate that, even if the computer is located right next to me so I could reach the space bar without standing up like I have to do wit my current setup
It’s not a bad shooter if you can live with that… at least on the C64. The Amstrad version is quite slow, but stays playable. The Speccy version is faster, but it’s monochromishness makes it really hard to spot the bullets.
The ST version is surprisingly decent. Proper speed, fluent animation and scrolling. It retains the power up system from the other version, but besides that it’s really good. Even the music is proper.
The MegaDrive version is the best. It gives you the 2nd button for the Power ups and it even has a “special” mode with a completely different level design.
