Monty on the Run

Family Computer Disk System

Game Description:

This game was originally released by Gremlin Graphics in 1986 for ZX Spectrum and C64 comptuers, as part of a series of games starring Monty Mole as the main character. The orignial version had him thrown in jail for stealing coal during the British miners strike of the 1980s, and with the aid of his handy rescue pack make for the continent via Dover docks. As you can see, for Monty to make it in Japan some changes were going to be made when Jaleco picked up the license in ‘87. What you get though hardly bears any resemblance to the computer original (though the Rob Hubbard theme tune survives). Monty is now a man, who through a horrible miscarriage of justice must clear his name by finding pieces of a photograph of the real culprit scattered through 4 levels.

It’s a lot easier than the original computer versions, and while the NES is hardly starved of platformers, its actually not that bad, no thanks to Jaleco’s bowdlerisation.

Thanks to all the hard work of Stardust Translations you can now enjoy it in English.
