Classic game play - Beginning level only
I specifically downloaded this because the description says it had multiple levels of difficulty. It does not. In "Lite" only the beginner level is available. Other than that, the play is the same game we're used to. Fun and fast. This one has "amp'd up" high score graphics and instant replay (don't know why that's important, but it's there). Nice graphics all round compared to the old PC classic. Just not what the description said.
