Unfortunately, you can only play solo on the C64 version, and to be truthful this kills the whole damn point of the game. The difficulty level seems to be set way too high, because it's almost impossible to reach the second level without lots of practice.
Bland graphics and poor animation coupled with some miserable sound effects means that C64 Aaargh! is unattractive to start with. Fewer available moves than the ST, a poor control method and no map just to make things worse.
Zzap! (Oct, 1989)
Amiga Aaargh! lost a lot when the two-player mode was removed from the home computer version. The C64 game also suffers from this, and overly simplistic gameplay, but the main fault is the difficulty level. Manoeuvring your monster around village huts while dodging giant insects is frustrating and repetitive. For very patient and forgiving fire-breathing monsters only.
Commodore Force (Jul, 1993)
Dodgy collision detection and feeble gameplay make this monster-bashing game's title particularly apt. Losing the arcade original's two-player mode cuts half the fun; having the rest converted so badly doesn't help either. Sadly AAARGH! is a game for very patient and forgiving fire breathing monsters.
Haarsträubend dagegen das C-64-AAARGH!: Unkenntliche, häßliche Sprites aus der Klamottenkiste, hingeklatschte Backgrounds, die aus meinen Kindertagen stammen könnten, eine Animation, die in Basic schneller wäre und ein Horrorsound Marke Soundchiptest sind ein Schlag ins Gesicht all jener, die für sowas Geld ausgeben. Wo war doch gleich der nächste Mülleimer...?
