Next Game:

Shadow Warriors.


Arcade Version:

Speccy version:

Verdict:

Loading Screen - Reasonably detailed, Backgrounds could have been better, not very colourful, cool looking picture though.


Graphics - The characters are bigger than the Arcade version, graphics are reasonably detailed but not as close as the arcade version, the colours can look a bit messy at times, not a bad effort.


Sound - Cool title tune on 128K version but sadly no in game music, only snippets of very short tunes when starting a level. Sound effects are pretty minimum but not bad.


Gameplay - Scrolling is reasonable when fighting againt 2 or 3 enemies, but the scrolling slows down when fighting a group of enemies and sometimes they attack you one at a time when makes the game slightly easier. The majority of enemies are intact and all the bosses are there. Performing the flying throw move is just as awkward as the Arcade version. The game is still challenging though.


Overall: Not a bad conversion but not a fantastic conversion either due to the slow at times scrolling and massive characters. Still a recommended game though on the speccy.


Score: 7 out of 10.

I don't get this thread. You'd be better off setting up your own Speccy conversion review website or blog IMO.

Me too. :? I'm not sure why he can't just contribute to exisiting threads rather than feel the need to start two or three everytime he logs on. :roll:

Is there a reason why really non of your links to photobucket is working?
Even when trying to use the direkt link via copy & paste, results in "page not found" on that site.
Possibly they are only viewable with your account?

Same here. None of yethboth's screenshots are showing up, and following the link takes me to Photobuckers "page not found" placeholder.
