Notice the attributed colours artefacts in the intro page and in game's HUD, a delightful and typical signature from the ZX Spectrum origin.

Notice also how the game manages to display 6 colours on screen yet remains mono-colour in the playfield. This heavy raster use may also be a cause of sluggishness.


Let's dream about how this game should have been done.
