Amiga version (OCS):

- runs on 512K chip/512k fast OCS 68000 Amiga, 25 fps (some slowdowns to expect at times)

- adapted "low detail" graphics, no blue mountain background
- low sound quality

- no whdload (no need, as it is designed to run on a 1MB OCS machine)

Amiga version (ECS):

- runs on 1MB ECS 68000 Amiga, 25 fps (some slowdowns to expect at times)

- Uses AGA fast DMA mode if found and runs at 50fps on AGA+fastmem

Very nice Arcade conversion, especially the A1200 version. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 02:29:01. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

Very good, just like the original arcade game. I also added this to my "Gameplay of New Amiga Games from March 2024" -video.

can´t get it to run on pistorm (disk and whdload). scrambled graphics here.

On terriblefire536 same problem. It starts, but crashes after 1 min.. Any help ? someone ?

(1 edit)

can you try the new version? There was a big bug for ECS machines


new version is working :) thx a lot 

ADF version is still crashing after 1 min, sometimes it doesn´t boot.  WHD version runs fine on Pistorm and TF536 (ECS System)

On which system/chipeset are you running the ADF? BTW if you can run with whdload I suggest that to stick to it as it has many splash screen options.

Hi, I have tested version from April1  on 2 Amiga Systems:

1. Amiga 500PAL, ECS,  Pi-storm, 2MB Chip, 300MB Fast, Kick3.1 

>> ADF Crashes with borderblank error on boot

>> WHDLoad works perfect

2. Amiga 500 NTSC, ECS, Terrible Fire 68030, 1MB Chip, 64MB Fast, Kick 3.1.4 

>> ADF crashes after menu (Trainer etc)

>> WHDLOAD forced to PAL works perfect


BTW Nice conversation.. thank. you .. just want to help you with bugfixes .....

Please upload this to Aminet so that every Amiga user can enjoy it (unfortunately, itch.io refuses to work using a lot of Amiga web browsers). Thanks!


This could help you and others:


cool :) thanks
