This was one of my favourite games. It had great graphics, a cool style and fun gameplay. It's years since I was last able to play it though, because it stopped working with some upgrade to our old R140 (RISC OS 3 or ARM3 upgrade), and then the R140 broke. I've never managed to get it running on later hardware or emulators.
