The Boz 2022-11-21 0 point Commodore 64 version
One of the most iconic arcades at the time, when I saw the reviews for this on the c64 I was majorly disappointed. Damning reviews slating it's difficulty levels, and there is nothing worse than getting quite far on in a level, dieing and then having to start at the very beginning. I did manage to get a copy of this and play it with cheats from an Action Replay cart. The graphics weren't bad at the time, but with the difficulty set so high, all fun was removed after a few games and being forced to replay the early part of levels time after time after time. Could have been so much better, and there were many side scrolling shooters that did a much better job.

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.
