Full-size ar­cade sprites

The an­i­mated sprites of the orig­i­nal have a gritty style to them. The spec­trum ver­sion has to make do with black and white of­fer­ings.

all fight­ing moves in­cluded

You can punch, kick, jump and even per­form the spin­ning fly­ing kick as you take out your en­e­mies in an ar­ray of fight­ing moves.

Just one shop screen

The power-up shops you find in the ar­cade ver­sion vary in each level, though the spec­trum ver­sion boasts the same screen in each stage.

Pump up the vol­ume

While the ar­cade game has a de­cent sound­track and rau­cous sound ef­fects, the spec­trum strug­gles to match it and the end re­sult is rather dis­ap­point­ing.

blackand-white graph­ics

one of the el­e­ments that had to be re­moved was the colour found in the ar­cade, though this was com­pen­sated by the level of de­tail on each char­ac­ter.
