When I was a kid I thought it was very difficult, but a masterpiece of videogame. I played it after years and years and nowdays I find it quite easy, but enjoyable in all the aspects (it doesn't support moderan resolutions, so it might "hurt" your eyes).

I had a pirate version when I was a kid. And in this cracked version the SAVE didn't work.

So before you say this game was difficult, remember me....I reached level 14 WITHOUT SAVINGS!!!! You can imagine the amount of time I spent in this masterpiece....

One the bests games of my childhood.
