Ah, good old jerky software scrolling done via redrawing the entire playfield.  But at least it wasn't a straight Spectrum port.


But maybe a hardware scrolling version of this (or similar) would be quite neat to have - even if it was a little jerky still.

It looks like a badly done Commando or Ikari Warriors.

What do you mean? Scrolling is butter-smooth and the playing area is huge! I wonder how they did that!


The arcade, on the other hand... oh my god, I really laughed with that.

The arcade version is just wrong. He looks like he's downed a bottle of whisky, or someone has broken his knees. Who signed that off?
