Just picked this up. This was such a classic game back in the day but i was awful at it !

How do you kill the dogs ? I thought you could 'kick low' but perhaps not, is it just a case of running away?

I need to go to youtube and follow a walkthrough for this as i'm determined to beat it ! But nice app, packaged well, nice you can change the graphic modes as well. Would be great to see the new graphical version at some point.

But looking forward to the next one. Loved Durrell games, Critical Mass was another great game and Turbo Esprit (like an early GTA) was so advanced for its time back then

Possible to have a joystick on the left instead of the various arrows ? Same for buttons on the right. Be nice to see some graphical ones not just arrows

Enjoying this retro classic
