Well I have this on PC Engine and it is a bit of a gem. Wasn't it also on the Taito Legends 2 pack for ps2 and xbox, just thought I'd mention this for those people without a PC Engine.

An excellent game indeed

One of the many excellent PC Engine games that never made it outside Japan, and a fine example of how the PCE could pump out colorful and vibrant graphics that rival the graphical output of the Mega Drive. It's also, on my short list (http://www.timewarpgamer.com/pages/tg16.html) of the greatest TG-16/PC-Engine Games. Fans of the console, please let me know if there are any other titles that you think should be added to the list.

It's a great game, remember seeing it reviewed as an import/arcade game in C&VG years ago and wanting to play it.

I read the review of Don Doko Don in C+VG when I was 12 (1991). Fast forward 12+ years later I ended up getting a PC Engine & snapped up the first copy of the game I could find. I'd never played it, but it looked brilliant & I wasn't disappointed. It can be a bit difficult, but I keep going back for more :)
