The NES version was also made considerably easier by adding a feature allowing the character to be hit once before he dies. Still, Karnov requires plenty of skill if you are going to get through its nine stages in one piece.

Jeu amusant et pas tellement long avec un personnage ├ętrange et des ennemis ├ętranges.

Karnov is a decent enough game if you look at the grand picture, but it certainly has its failures as well. Still, this platformer dared to go in a different direction than most of the others. It was a rather unusual direction, resulting in sloppy programming and a pudgy main character who defies the laws of gravity when he falls, and these can often add to the already slightly manic difficulty level presented before you. The game's worth a try, but as soon as you defeat the final boss, run to your NES deck and shut it off before you get really pissed off and throw a scummy galosh at your television set.
