 What a load of junk this game is!!  This is one of those games that US Gold 
 would have gotten a cheap licence for whilst they were buying more 
 'prestigious' licences!
 To confirm something that the author of the JST install has already 
 suspected, the original master disk that was sent to the duplicators when the 
 game was made was broken. Tracks 76-79 are incorrectly formatted, so the very 
 final level is missing.
 I checked out the cracked versions, the Accumulators version wasn't even 
 cracked properly, and the Paradox crack also had the same problems that have 
 been identified..... shows you just how important this game was to US Gold!!!
 Needless to say, I have modified all the routines so that when you play the 
 level before the end, the correct text messages are displayed.
 Utterly shocking conversion, Arc Developments should hang their heads in shame, 
 conversions really don't come any worse than this!
 In Game Trainer
 During the game, press F1 to have placed all bombs
 During the game, press F2 to add an extra life to player one.
 NOTE: If you press F1, and then place a bomb and try and exit, the game won't 
 let you, simply press F1 again, and you can complete the level.
 Sorry, but I cannot even bring myself to tell you to 'enjoy this classic'!!!!!

Kindest Regards, Galahad of Fairlight
