yet again the pc version sounds and looks like crap!.

The c64 version looks superior and had much smoother gameplay and ofcourse not to mention the killer sound track.

The Amiga version has better gfx than the c64 version and music too but the gameplay is not as smooth as on the c64 though still a lovely game and i do remeber .... DAMN booby traps!

(forgot to say this

the pc version felt "delayed" when playing in dosbox , like when you move and then let go of the key and it still moved for a little while...how annoying.

so it seems it lost the battle even in the playbility area...

Well the side scrolling is not as sooth as it should be. It was actually around this time that PC games started becoming comparable with C64 games (PC just got 16 color graphics and first soundcards started coming out).

Couldn't agree more. This one's crappy. After getting used to the controls I had lost my interest. So now I can officially say Platoon was crappy except on C64!

:not_ok:

I knew that I needn't bother with the download by the time I read "pc speaker".
Dammit, the C64 soundtrack is one of the best tunes ever on that machine - don't spoil your memory with this one.

0 points for MS-DOS. :whistle:

Well it's not the fault of the game that PC was inferior to C64 at that time. Compared to other PC games this one would be top of the line for a few more years!!!

I remember paying about $15 USD for this game back in the late 80's and unfortunately was very dissappointed in it. My experience with the keyboard controls were horrible, especially during the tunnel scenes. The game didn't allow you enough time to react and move the crosshair to shoot the enemy. I give it 2 out of 5, 2 for the decent graphics at the time...

Does anyone know if the NES version of this game is any better/worse than the other versions of it?
