Meh – this is a game that I have never been able to get that excited about.  While it is a platform game from Apogee – it was released quite late in the ‘PC Platform Gaming ERA’.  The game itself is okay – but the graphics feel a bit clunky and the story line is not engaging.  As for comparing this to Mario Brothers – you have to be kidding 🙂

Anyway – this game runs well under Virtual PC and you can download it from ftp://ftp.3drealms.com/share/1hp11.zip
