This is worth having as part of a collection, but overall this one was a mistaken to release as is, it was a huge flop and in my opinion is the reason they released the construction kit, that said I could be wrong, it is just what I always thought.
the maps are monochrome greyscale, Rockford wears a space suit and the level designs look like something I could have made myself, several levels that I discovered long after getting the CK and making my own even looked like and played like my own amateur creations.
if the game had colour it would have been far less of a failure.
it is worth noting that the game was also released on Apple 11, Spectrum and PC as well as the two platforms mentioned here.

Played this much less than 1 & 2. This is the one they messed up by changing the formula. Gameplay wasn't as good and I didn't like the graphics. The space theme gave it a drab monochrome look and Rockford in a space suit didn't look like Rockford. Why you do this?
