Summary

Side Scrolling Masterpiece

The Good

Well, like everyone else, its been years since I've played it, on my good ol' Commodore 64, which I still have, so I'm reviewing off childhood memories here. =) Anyhow, the graphics for the time were pretty good, and the general theme of the game was great, as well as the game play itself.

The Bad

The plot was somewhat sketchy, I couldn't always figure out what I was supposed to do next.

The Bottom Line

Unlike the rest, I have finished it. =) The main goal is to rescue a guy named Rammo from the tunnels underground, Below the Root, as it were. There's either, a few large trees you have to traverse, or just one big one with some rather large limbs, I couldn't tell you without seeing the fold-out map again.. But you have to save a few people, help out some others, gather items, and get below the trees to save Rammo... what I'm not sure of, however, is who he is really, and why he's stuck under the roots...
