I still think the ST version is superb.

The later Saturn version is arcade perfect.
cheers, don't think ive played either version so something to try out.

The only truly lamentable version I ever played was on my beloved Apple II.. but then again that was a tough, tough ask before even trying to code!

C64 for me. The SID rendition of the title tune and the tighter gameplay area makes it a winner. I don't care if it's 100% accurate.

So which do people think is the ultimate version? The arcade? Amiga version? C64? Any others?

The arcade version I found just a tad too difficult, for me, of the ones I have played, the Amiga version played best, was slightly slower and that suited me fine.
Always found the arcade version pretty easy. Lots of the home conversions are great, but for me the arcade one is the best by far. Great memories of playing the Amiga version non stop with my mate though for many days. Just a great playable game

Unfortunately the music has always annoyed me, so it's not perfect for me, great but not perfect.
