Nice conversion! In the first level I see a different layout compared to the arcade game. The layout of the first level in this conversion is the layout of the third level of the arcade version.

that's what happens when you're redoing a game from scratch and not by transcode! Sorry for this.

Very nice arcade conversion! Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 01:21:50. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

I played it on my TheA500 Mini and I gotta say, I actually enjoyed it. And it is a pretty damn good port for the Amiga 500. I hope you do it with more arcade games soon.

Very nice. Thanks :)

Nice arcade game!

Could you make a WHDLoad version of this game? If so, it should be compatible with the upcoming THEA500 Mini


Already done. A whdload slave is included in the .adf file

One of my favorite arcade games! Well done!
