This was the most amazing piece of software released for a home computer in years. Finally, a program that would capture the look and feel of the arcade version-more than 5 years later. At least - that's how the Amiga version was.

In 1989 after many months in development, Visionary Design Technologies headed by Randy Linden developed the software technology necessary to bring this game to life on the Amiga. ReadySoft was able to take the full colour release and animation done on the Amiga and dither it down to black and white on the Macintosh.

The result is not as bad as you might think. The sound is all here but the game is very picky on the hardware it will run on. A Mac PLUS or SE with 1MB of RAM is the best and it will install onto a hard drive.

This game has been very difficult to find on the internet, so we have an actually full download (12.4 MB) available here including everything you need.
