This features nicely drawn and animated monsters, although the sound is a bit of a let down. On the title screen the tune is a strange metallic sounding composition that grates on the ears after a while. In game sound is limited to a few crunch, bang, tinkle effects and the monster announcing each find in a gutteral voice for blind players.
ST Aaargh! is easily the most enjoyable of all the versions currently available, but it's far too easy to complete on your own. An in-game tune wouldn't have gone amiss, but otherwise the sound effects and graphics are nice.
Selbst den Programmierern scheint das Konzept zu dünn gewesen zu sein, sodaß sie bei der ST-Konvertierung noch ‘ne Karte aller erreichbarer Dörfer eingefügt haben. Klasse Idee, echt, muß man doch jetzt noch warten, bis die Karte eingeladen wurde, um dann beim Spiel festzustellen, daß alles beim alten geblieben ist. Immerhin, die Grafiken und sogar der Sound sind auf dem ST annähernd identisch zur Amigafassung, wenn die Sprites auch etwas ruckeln.
