Loved this one back in the day, but I want the original Amiga version, not this one that was a downgrade for the Spectrum. Still, I'm tempted, and curious what others think.

It says 'near 100% of the original'. I'm not familiar with early Spectrum games. What is the difference?

This game was originally released for the Amiga (16 bit) then later ported to the Spectrum (8 bit.) This is the Spectrum version. One of the best features of the Amiga version was the "orchestral" sound effects which I am almost certain are missing from this version. Obviously the graphical differences are significant too. Still, if the gameplay is intact this would be well worth picking up for a buck.
