For better and worse
This game is a piece of living history, and in so being displays it's triumphs and flaws in troves. It is, as advertised, a playable cartoon. This is a miracle of very basic programming. In order to achieve this however, the game is very limited and the controls depend entirely on timing that was developed over 30 years ago. There is a steep learning curve for each new "room". What strikes me as a let down is how random the journey through this castle seems. There is no attempt at narrative or progressive challenge until the final scene, and then, once you've mastered it (the option of infinite lives is very welcome and all but necessary) it is over in a flash. I would have preferred more watchable cutscenes and more time to linger in each room. It all goes bye so fast that you hardly have time to appreciate the genius animation on display. In the end I'm thrilled to be able to venture past the first frame (which i never conquered in the arcade, always assuming the game was somehow broken) and I am grateful someone has taken the time to restore it. It is well worth $5 to relive, in all it's clunky, beautiful, eye-popping, imperfect glory.
Never a dull moment ("
Now having this game on iPads and smartphones is Wasup (" this game takes me waaaay back to spending all those quarters at Chuckee Cheese and didn't beat the game til I owned the game when I was grown but it was worth it. Dirk is the Man and love the animation...this game keeps you on your toes and there is never a dull moment a must have ("
Great Game No glitches
I bought the game for iPhone 6 on iOS 8 expecting glitches and crashes. There were none. The gameplay is smooth, and there is a watch mode. Overall, great game.
