Don't agree with you on the graphics. CPC is actually better than the C64 on this one IMHO.

Forum downtime

Been plenty of toughies in the past. Ones that spring to mind are that goddamn Marshmellow Man on the C64 Ghostbusters :evil: , the flying Dragon on Moonstone (Amiga) and Scumocide, the final boss in Captain Commando. Those gits are rock! :x
