Something that made me chuckle was when the game loaded up a voice said "You dare fight me?" and my mate replied "Yes, otherwise I wouldn't have bought the game!"

Original & brilliant platformer with great gameplay, graphics & sound... need I say more?

A few negative comments here, but I really liked this one back in the day. I only played the arcade game a couple of times back then, (really loved it though), but the ST conversion was pretty close. I have a hard time playing it these days - same as any ST arcade conversion since MAME emerged - but still a classic.

i really LOVED this game ! i gotta admit today the arcade version as notiong to do with this, and i meself and fun trying to change the old atari graphics into more arcade like visuals. This game made me buy my japanese genesis to and is the reason i bought myself a real arcade cabinet. everlasting respect to tiertex for making me love this game in the first place !

The graphics are impressive, but the scrolling and controlling the character is ... well not the best i've seen. but if it is one of a few games you own, you keep on playing... but if you got a choice...go for something else or get an arcade emulator and play the arcade version... in my memory it runs way better.

Oh, I can't follow the optimistic jugement of the ST- Format. Strider was great in the Arcades, but the ST version was very porly converted. I just remember these ugly scrolling - someone could get sick while playing it to long. There are far better action- platformer on the ST. (Like Turrican2)

Man this was a fantastic platformer. Completed this one.
