Trivia

Spectrum version limitations

After running out of memory on the Spectrum machines at the end of the development, the game had to be reduced drastically in gameplay only two weeks before release, making the Spectrum version limited compared to the other released versions. Only two levels are there (instead of three), the screen size is only half of the other versions and some other things are missing (like a level selection).
