    The first rom I downloaded didn't work, as had been updated in the newer Mame versions.

    This rom works for the latest mame.

    Good luck all.

    Cool, these old Sega platformers are usually good fun. The music is pretty funky

    Don't let the innocent look of the game fool you, this game needs precision jumping and moving all the time.
    I'm finding it as hard as Ghost and Goblins

    You know the game is tough when you can't even get near the default highscore.
