Brings back memories.. Excellent gameplay, nice graphics, interesting story and a very solitary atmosphere that goes with it. I recall sitting in front of the TV (as a child) trying to beat this one - I never have, but I came damn close to it.. Pity the 8-bits didn't have the save feature, as we know it on today's PCs ;-)

BTW I had the opportunity to try the ZX Spectrum and C64 versions, but I couldn't get to like either.. ZX was "jerky" and the C64 one was too slow. THis one got the smoothness combined with the appropriate speed just right.

No, the nasty bug was a keyboard lockup when you had to type in a password. Picking up multiple items was always fine - you had a couple of keys to move around your inventory to use/drop items you're carrying, or choose an empty slot to pick something up into.

I'm guessing that the "nasty bug" was that it wouldnt allow you to pick up more than one item?

I spent my life savings (i was 8) on this one and then spent hours trying to figure out how to pick up more than one item. The game looked really good but never being able to carry stuff meant it was hopeless to play.

The repaired version seems to work perfectly. Nice movement and character animations.

The original tape release had a nasty bug. This is a fixed version of the game.
