Summary

OH YES! The Arcade classic comes to the C-64 Personal Computer!

The Good

A NICE job was done bringing this Arcade Ultra-Classic to the Commodore 64 personal computer. I had just as much fun playing it on the C-64 as I did in the Arcade! This game is solid Arcade action. There is some thought needed if one wishes to make it to the highest levels. Rumor had it there were 99 levels. The highest I've ever gone was the level 30's.

One of the earliest games in which players were given many, and different, multiple character choices. (Perhaps the first one?!?)

The Bad

It is virtually impossible to finish LOL! I've never ever heard of anyone finishing it in the Arcade, or on the PC.

The Bottom Line

One of the first newer generation CLASSIC Arcade games. A nice job was done translating it to the C-64 version. An oldie but a goodie. Still nice to play today for some quick, and instant fun!
