User Review Information

When it continues to update. It's better than the original. Hack - better than the original

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 27 Oct 2020

Looking at what happened over time, the hаck has been updatеd decently. It feels slowly that it really looks almost like a port. The title screen is good, the physics is improved, the graphics are pleasing to the eye, the music is improved. If this is updated again and again soon - it will really become a port from SEGA to NES. Оh… I forgot, here the levels are adjusted for a more fair game, commendable.

It partially takes other ideas that were created by other HACKERS, but together, and with the ideas of this author - they are well combined. I especially liked “changing the waterfall”, which is in this pack “set up a hack as you want”.

Version 1.4 Recommended - Yes
