ST version is great, STE version even better.
Bitmaps always did a great job on the ST

Trolling started here too - not some big surprise, of course.
But I would delete such obvious provocations immediately.

Yeah, maybe he/she will soon entertain us with the link which show his/her achievements for software archiving and preservation ;)

It needs 1MB RAM min on ST because of scroll.
On STE there is HW support for it, while on ST needs preshifted tiles, objects, and that takes extra RAM.

As it says on the additional comments "Non-STe machines requires 1MB of RAM"

Nope, i think this site is not accurate. I tried to run chaos engine on hatari (st,tos 1.04 with 0.5mb ram) and the game informed me that it needs 1mb of ram...

I cant believe, most of the games on ST requires half megabyte of ram to work. For example Chaos Engine on st works with half meg but the same game on amiga needs 1mb :/ I cant understand that. For me atari seems to be more capable than amiga

I rate this as one of the best games on the ST. Ace game imho.
