It was meant to be ThunderCats?  I don't know if I ever knew this.  ThunderCats is my fave cartoon of all time and I felt the actual official game was pretty lousy but enjoyed Beyond the Ice Palace.   Hm, if they could recolour that sprite to have blue clothes and red hair it would be passable as Lion-O.

I'm not that fond of the music in this game though.  I preferred Whittaker's tune for the actual released ThunderCats game despite being disappointed at the time that it wasn't the classic theme tune of the show.

The Thundercats game tune is awesome, and definitely the best thing about the game.
 I always liked Beyond the Ice Palace, thought it was a well presented game which although hard was enjoyable.

Hm.  Doesn't mention Storm Warrior which is also by Elite and features a sword wielding character with big red hair and blue outfit.  And storm = thunder, maybe?   :)


Seriously though, Bomb Jack 2?   How random...

And god how I hate that awful 2011 reboot series...

It's a shame that they hadn't created this scrolling engine for Ghost n Goblins.

It was mentioned in Amstrad Computer User that this was comissioned as Thundercats.
