Summary

Yet to be bettered

The Good

An outrageously superb game, even now. Fast, furious and most importantly, fun! The most amazing thing about this game is that you REALLY can just pick it up again and enjoy it the same way you did when you first played it. The playability and difficulty curve are THAT good.

This game single-handedly cemented the Bitmaps Bros fame for all time (even if their other games didn't deserve it) and Eric Matthews is a sorely missed genius!

(I would LOVE to see this game updated, while NOT changing a single thing about the gameplay... just more beautiful graphics and sound.)

The Bad

Multi-player league and knockout are bizarrely missing and there's no good reason why! (Even the 256 color AGA 'Update' didn't include it!) If they'd had this then it would probably be still being played today!

The Bottom Line

Completely, truly and utterly perfect.
