Copyright message

The DOS version was published by Go! in 1988, as were the other versions, but the in-game title screen gives a copyright notice of 1987. The rest of the message running through at the bottom of the title screen is, well, interesting:

Version differences

The C64 version features hidden extras warp the ship into bizarre pinball-style bonus levels, vertically scrolling but devoid of enemies except for bouncing metal balls.

The Spectrum ZX version contains most gameplay variation, despite cuts due to the Spectrum’s inferior technology. While close to the C64 version in style, level design differs strongly, and the pinball stages no longer scroll but turn out to be actual crude pinball mini-games.

The Armstrad CPC version cuts back on the backgrounds in favor of empty space and comes with completely changed enemy patterns, effectively making it a different game. It’s identically to the DOS version gameplay-wise.

The DOS version has a 4-color CGA palette and is generally soundless.
