For those who were around at the time, this is wonderfully nostalgic.

The Good

This was the first game of any kind I played on the PC, so I guess I'm looking at it through rose-tinted spectacles. At the time it was ground-breaking - 16 colour graphics, cool sound effects, great action, utterly addictive. Wonderful stuff.

The Bad

Then again, when it was the only game I had, I guess it was the novelty of playing it that kept me going rather than any inherent addictiveness.

The Bottom Line

It obviously doesn't compare to modern games, but that's not the point, is it? This game was free (well... shareware) at the time, so I guess still is. For anyone who's old enough to remember the quality of early games, I heartily recommend a look at this.
