Get the C64 Version for best Music and gameplay, Master system Version and TurboGfxCD version for best gfx. All other Versions are a lot less entertaining in either aspect.

After a bit of trying I got this to work on the FS-UAE launcher. Seems to work OK on the Amiga 500+ platform. Don't forget to select all the ADF files when loading.
Right CTRL is the enter (for firing) and the arrows are movement which makes playing very difficult.
