DOS version was too janky for me and much worse than I remember, though perhaps that’s due to DOSBox-X or my machine? GOG copy works better IME.

Feels like it needs quick-save and load with all the platforming and the frenetic play. From what little I’ve played it does feel like they want you to back up often to snipe, even then there is nearly constant incoming fire.

Graphics are too dark and ill-defined sometimes. When games do that I just crank the brightness until it’s slightly washed out, so that edges are visible. Things look worse yet are more playable. With ‘proper’ brightness I feel like I’m never sure where the boundaries are. This game in particular makes that feeling worse with its — otherwise welcome — verticality.

It’s still fun today. Just a bit harder to get working well and adjust to the quirks from the era.
