SummaryGreat innovative platformer
The GoodI worked at a software store when this game came out. Though we didn't carry it, several co-workers and I spent hours playing it and learning the precise controls to beat each level. We loved this game, right from the opening credits with the digitized sample of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor to the animation within the game and the humorous death sequences.
Through experimentation, we learned the precise positioning of Duncan's arm needed to defeat the bats in one level and the timing for the boulders in another. The developers used the high resolution Macintosh display to full effect for this game.
The BadThe only drawback to this game was that--at the time--it wasn't available for any other platform but Macintosh. It also lacked a save game feature, but so did most other video games of the era.
