Yep this one had a rather good sampled mod with old style house samples in "say kids what time is it" was from a 1988 coldcut track called doctoirin the house, which was also yazza's debut. Also the chip musics very good too especially the 1st level. Graphics are exceptionally well done, very close to that of the amiga, so all in all not too bad a game.

I remember playing this when it first came out on, I had my ST hooked up to my dodgy record player with Phono in (A five pin job curiously the same type as a midi port ) to listen to the title music, during the intro however my ST's interference caused the dodgy hifi to make strange noises when the screen changed, which sounded like a machine gun, so was I the only one who had sound during the intro??? :-) Seriously though, I had already seen the Amiga version & looked forwarded to the ST version including the sampled sounds, I dunno just because there was no DAC to make it easy.... but hang on their was a four track tune in their at the menu so they COULD program sam replay so what was the excuse u lazy B@$$t@rd$. sorry I'm ranting...

I LOVED this game. The music was excellent (all tunes were on the menu for pp79 too, if you want to listen to them. Hit m to change tune ;) This game not only hooked me with playability, but something about the atmosphere. Even if the gameplay wasn't as good, I would have wanted to play it. And yeah, the fast-forward replay mode was SO good, I wish more games had that today. 10/10

psygnosis did well with this, the games the same as the amiga (yes, yes.. with slightly grittier scrolling - but it had a good soundtrack by count zero) and I loved playing it.. even though I never got much further than the third level (god I'm sh*t at games!)

I Loved the concept of the rising water that hurried you to finish the levels. The puzzles are entertaining and the 'red herring' pun was priceless. Alseo the most unique feature ever found: fast forwarding the game when you died so you could restart with your next life at the point you decided!

I remember playing this game on one of my cousin's Atari ST computers in Italy. I didn't even know that they also had Atari ST computers in Italy. That was so neat to see. The first time I played it, I really liked the music. Many other Atari ST games have cool music too. This is one of the neatest games to play. It reminds me a of another game Psygnosis made called "Blood Money".

The soundtrack in this game absolutely rocks!!!!

P.S. When I said there was no sound on here I just meant on the opening intro. The actual game has great sound.

I first saw this game as a demo on an Amiga at Electronics Boutique. I almost bought an Amiga because of it. Imagine how pleased I was when it came out later on the ST. The intro is in there just like on the Amiga, although there is no sound which depressed me. Anyway, the graphics rule just like most Psygnosis games. I would strongly recommend it.
