SummaryA faithful port of the original arcade gameplay.
The GoodThe gameplay of Karnov is very fair--nothing is too hard to avoid, but still challenging. The power-ups are worthwhile picking up, and some are even hidden, for extra challenges. (Of course, all of this is identical to the arcade game, which speaks volumes for Quicksilver's efforts in porting it to the PC.)
The music and sound effects are better than adequate, considering only PC speaker output is supported.
The BadWhile the sprite graphics are fairly good, the background graphics are terrible. I know that the EGA and CGA color set were limiting, but other games in this genre have done more with less, so there's no excuse.
Of course, this doesn't affect gameplay too much, so it's not that important an issue.
