Very tempting. Remember this back in the early 90's, great big box, big disk, an expensive price !

I am curious about the controls too. I seem to recall most games were played using joysticks during the Amiga era...

The Amiga had a mouse as well, but I doubt this game was played with it, since the C64 version was totally joystick controlled and it worked great.

This controls with a small d-pad like controller on the left and a button on the right. It's not perfect, but it seems to be getting the job done.
