The graphics are stunning, the sound effects brilliant - the sound of the characters feet is a wonderful feat (ha!). I have no hesitation in whole heartedly recommending both the Commodore 64 and Spectrum versions of the game to you. There may be an Amstrad version released later on but the word from Hewson is that will depend the programmers can speed up the action.
Tough it obviously can't match the C64 version for colour or sound, the Spectrum Nebulus is very nearly as fast and every bit as addictive. No fish to catch between levels, but it's still a cracker of a game.
The Spectrum graphics are monochromatic, although a bit more colour could have been splashed about on the ledges if they were exactly one character high; happily the mono graphics don't have any serious effect on the gameplay apart that it can be difficult sometimes to notice aliens as quickly. The titlescreen music is surprisingly good (there's no difference between 48K and 128K) although there's little but spot FX throughout the game.
Wie dem auch sei, NEBULUS ist jedenfalls ein tolles Game, das wieder einmal beweist, daß die besten Games aus England derzeit von HEWSON kommen. Congratulations!
