This was a good 'un.. U got it in a (I think Gremlin) compilation pack with 'Super Cars' and a couple of others that I can't remember, but these two are the ones that stood out.. The music was the best part I thought.. :-)

Great stuff but a little hard. Reminded me of Gods. Great Manga style graphics & classic platform gameplay. I really feel the need to take a day off work now & dut off my ST!

such a good game ! Core design at its best !! The music was great, the system was great (energy concentration and fireballs). Kind of console like game I started to enjoy at the time !! Better than the second one IMHO !!

The controls are somewhat icky but the game itself is a nice platformer.

Loved this game.. excellent atmosphere, really felt like I was deep in some subterrainian world.. The music was great, too, though this is the first time I've heard of Ben Dalglish.. does he have any other notable works?

A real classic. Very well designed, and the music by Ben Dalglish is as good as ever!
