STATUS
The X68000 makes a perfect job of Taito's wonderful action platformer - the game is near identical to the 1988 arcade original.
Serves as yet another reminder of how sad it was that the X68000 never left Japanese shores. Too many Western players were stuck with the shitty Atari ST and Amiga versions; and worst of all, they were loving it.

Large plastic PC case, 2 x 5" floppies, monochrome booklet.

The PC Engine hosts a perfectly playable version of Taito's cult arcade game, the problem is that the pitch of the music is so piercing it's almost painful.
