I think Retrogamer reviewed it positively, but then it is the same dev team as the previous Bub&Bob games, so I'm witholding judgement.

So, um, anyone?

I remember EG saying that they hadn't messed with it other than tarting up some of the sprites. Might pick it up tomorrow after reading a few reviews.

Hmm maybe not. No reviews yet.

Its the tarting up of sprites that would make me sob like a baby.

C64 version was superb.

Amiga version was true to the arcade version.

Tis very true. I never did ever get to the end of this game.

Went back to it a year or two ago and found it to be a frustrating asswipe of a game, still cool though. I liked stealing the floating thing off the fucked up cat that had a trio of tiny mines following it around. The vehicles were awesome.

This is one of the few games I finished in the arcade.

Loved it.

They've changed the music. The sprintes look awful. The level layouts are different.

But the cherry on the turd is the ludicrous "spot the difference" game that kicks in DURING THE GAME.

They should have at least included the unmolested original as an unlockable.
