The original Amstrad CPC version was a rushed port of the (well received) Spectrum version and as a result was not all it could have been on the CPC’s more powerful hardware. The new remake, developed by team Easter Egg, began life with the same Spectrum code, but now 80% of it has been rewritten specifically for the CPC. Graphics, sounds and music have all also been greatly improved.
Easter Egg member Xyphoe has a made a preview video available. Check it out below.
