    It's not so bad A challenging platformer for sure, akin to the Monty Mole series on the C64 or Ghosts and Goblins in the Arcades, both of which I spent a fair bit of time on.

    It's learnable enough, ie what the enemies are going to do / where they're going to do it. First two rounds aren't actually that bad once you've gone through them a few times to learn, but I didn't get too far at all in round 3, those swinging blob things were kind of tricky.

    Good nomination

    I agree about learning the levels jamma except for that @#$%ing teddy bear boss on stage one, I just can't get the timing for it yet, found the stage 2 boss/ending a lot easier.

    In fact I bet there's only a floating head left because someone else has already ripped the padded thing off after landing on note after note after note .

    That's a great idea Dkong, then we can all enjoy a bit of background story attached to the game of the week, there's usually stories attached to people's faves, I for one would like to hear them

    Round two tomorrow you bastard game!

    LOL.............I will read this quote to the Mrs next time she says "you don't have to play it you know" after I let out another exasperated "GRRRRRRRR"

    I used to enjoy the Original Alex the Kidd on my Sega Master System, but have not given this version more than a quick look, will have go now

    Yeah I agree with the stories about why you nominated a game, in fact I started doing that with my nominations on the noms thread weeks ago.

    Also noticed that "The Pinny Parlor" who nominated Crazy Balloon 5 times is yet to play a game in this comp. Didn't play last couple of MGL's either. Can we please regard his nomination as spam? I don't think people should need to play all games to be in the MGL, but to just nom one game and not play others at all doesn't seem to joining in the spirit.

    I really like all the chat that goes on about the games during the MGL's, it's fun to be reminded of games you used to play or find something new but its also good to hear about who played what where . This one's all new to me though, went from C64 to the megadrive with home consoles and definitely don't remember it from the arcades.

    My daughters not real happy that I keep killing the little monkey either, in fact this morning I managed to jump down the same chute three times in a row .

    Hmmmm, I can see why I didn't play this for long when I first saw it.

    The developers really got it wrong with the difficulty curve here, I wonder how well they could play it themselves.

    I'm usually ok at platformers like this, and have got to the end of Ghost's and Goblins in the arcade. But this game doesn't give me the feeling of progression enough to even rate it any replay value.

    I give that idea the Julian Rignall Two Thumbs Up.



    Edit: I'm not finding this game especially hard, and the learning curve reasonable. maybe some of you are getting soft ?

    I'm enjoying it a lot more than @#$%^@#$%^ choplifter, which I've just found out is very playable on a keyboard, bit late on that one

    2nd Edit: I *am* now finding this game especially hard, level 3 is just horrible.
