With out any doubt it has to be the Amiga 500 & PS1 version.

It has to be the Amstrad version! The graphics are spot on, music is fine and the gameplay is great!

Another vote for the CPC version, not only does it look the business but it plays so well. It's just technically so impressive, the most accurate conversion has to be the Megadrive.

I grew up with the Amstrad version. Not only was it a graphical masterpiece for the machine, but unlike other conversions the difficulty was just right.

I think the C64 version was one of the machine's last great conversions, looked lovely but, more importantly, played like a dream.

This is a toughie, but as I have played the speccy version more as a kid then I would have to say the Speccy.

The Amstrad version was pretty tight though most of the magic was lost with a green monitor. Ps1 was the definative conversion.

C64 every time

Not just one of the best conversions, one of the best games ever on the system (if not the best)
