- Graphics and audio are ok, but could use more work. A proper highscores list would be nice and maybe make it more interesting to play. The gameplay is poor. I got bored after less than 30 seconds. I love remakes, but more often than not, the original gameplay is very dated and one should really add a few new elements to make it work. This is one of those cases. The default controls aren't very good (I especially don't like to have to use Up Arrow to fire) and unfortunately not configurable.
- Slightly above the Allegro.cc depot average but still nothing special. Hi-res low detail graphics, matching sounds and MIDI music that doesn't even play during the game. And unless it brings up some childhood memories for you, it's quite boring...
- Incredible! This is an *exact* remake of the orginal game I played when I was 5 years old. Just as fun today as it was 14 years ago. It's just perfect!!
