Not really a game for scoring, so let's see who gets furthest? Or give us a review?  I got up to a point where there was a pool with a couple of monsters, where there was a shotgun.  I had no idea how to get out of the water/pool.
Actually think this is a great game, apart from having to switch from keyboard (K key) to Joystick (J key) constantly when I needed to open a door or change weapons.  This is using the A500 mini.  Has anyone else had a go and can suggest how this should be played?  Also if there is a jump button or key to get out of the water!!?

All I’ve been able to work out so far with  the water is - don’t get in it!  ;)

Ok.. I like this game! The water still has be stuck (pretty flash for the age) - managed to get on without it!

If I was not so short on time I would try and write up more of the adventure, but in short I made it to Level 3 - which is mostly "water" so that explains why its as far as I got!  :D

Big tip for that start of Level 3, stay on the edges in the first chamber!

I agree the controls are bit odd and tricky - I could not work out any other option than keyboard "space" to open doors! and I don't understand why you can "duck" and not jump!

My first plays were on the A500 mini, Even with keyboard switching got as far as Level 2 (well not far in)!

So final progress from my is Level 3! (WHDLoad AGA version - no patches set) on the Vampire V4 under ApolloOS with Game-pad and keyboard.

Oh my! Getting my backside kicked in this one! Not a chance of winning a match  ;)

About 20 points is my best  ;D I won’t say what the opposition scored it’s too embarrassing!  :o

Played again... could not get anywhere near by previous best of 20!

The attached is a bout typical of my scores!
