Great game. Too bad there were no sequels on PC, those were quite entertaining at least on SEGA.

I love this game.
Many people think that DOS version isn't good, but it was a good conversion for that time.
Framerate is not perfect, but it's really playable in comparison to the other computer ports, especially for the complete controls.

The audio was kind of crappy too, but I still enjoyed it at least because there were very few beat 'em ups on the PC.

Yea, the framerate can be a bit choppy even with DOSBox or superfast machines (or as fast as the last machines than ran some kind of DOS got). It can be helpful nevertheless: Sometimes it turns into a kind of 'bullet time' where you can perfectly place your hits. ;)

Haha :D

Being a huge game music geek, I really like the in-game music of this game. Especially the C64 version with Jeroen Tel's rendition of this tune on the SID is beautiful! Jeroen Tel lives a few towns away from me and I'm a big fan of his work in the C64 music scene.

Those filtered sawtooths in the bassline and excellent arpeggios in the accompaniment really hit the spot, especially when played back on my dual SID C64 ;-)

I found the PC version, which is the first version I played on my friend's old Compaq Portable 3 back in 1990, really quite playable. Graphics looked quite good for the time but the framerate and scrolling was clearly not up to par. The Amiga version was much better in that regard, having a hardware blitter.
