Log entries

  • What a wonderfully weird version of the Amiga classic. This was remade by DMA Design for the PC-Engine CD / TurboGrafx CD. The main character punches super fast, making this more of a twitch action game than the original. The streaming CD music was recreated from Dave Whittakers original soundtrack by Chris Howlett and Ian Henderson.
  • I played through the Tree level in one attempt, and in another I managed to get to the Gun section in the Castle.

  • I played a bit of the Beast on my MiSTer. I don't know about this music, it's a bit more cheesy than the original...
