Amiga version

The Amiga version was a relatively-early 1Mb-only game, but there were plans to release a separate 512K version, which was finally scrapped in mid-1991.

Console conversions

This game was ported to both the Nintendo NES and Sega Genesis console systems. The NES version featured slightly lengthier dialog, simplified graphics with smaller character sprites, and both the title screen and the spider level were removed (to save space, and possibly because the titular "Immortal" was deemed "too disturbing"). The Sega Genesis version is, to my knowledge, completely faithful to the original computer release.

Both console versions feature a larger soundtrack and some more tunes than the computer version.
