This is now released on xbox live arcade, and i still cant see what the fuss is all about. The gameplays far to repetitive for my liking.

I played this in the arcade and loved it. I bought the ST version and although it had it's moments it was a bit of a let down. I agree with Matt Bailey, the Megadrive version is far superior.

Without a doubt one of the best platformers there ever was but the ST version let me down with bad graphics & was a little easy. Stick to the Mega Drive conversion of Sega's arcade classic!

Not the best of games but not bad either. I actualy managed to finish this one. A bit sort if I remember correctly.

it seemed that back in the 16bit years that if a game was hyped to death then it was brill, this is one of those games hyped crap.

When I first played this game on the Atari ST back in 1988, I wasn't so good at it. I never even beat the game back then because when the disk tried to load the last area, it would cause an error. Since I found Atari ST emulation, I have played this game many times. Now, I'm so good that I can beat the rhino on the last level without using the trainer for infinite lives. This is a big Sega classic.
