Normally when a game goes from 16 to 8 bits, things tend to cut, remove phases, removing features ... There are few times when a product is improved by passing it to a technically inferior, but that's what happened in the case of this conversion. A hardware-based Amiga coin-op, that despite having some pretty good graphics and a fun idea (copying and extending Rampage), its erratic behavior in the control did little more than unplayable.

In eight bits, although it isn't a super easy game, the controls respond as they should, and if we add a bigger presence of objects that recharge our energy, the game is much more bearable than the original. In addition (although I have no idea about the reason), the sets are completely different compared with the 16-bit versions.

Interestingly, of all "minor" conversions, the two best are those Aaargh! versions that Animagic scheduled for MSX and Amstrad. Surprised?, I am too!

Ranking de versiones
· AMSTRAD CPC: Haciendo gala de un colorido asombroso y unos gráficos bien animados, el juego es rápido y jugable en CPC; incluso la fase en la que luchamos contra el otro monstruo por los huevos, con los sprites ampliados a lo bestia, queda mucho mejor en CPC que en los otros ordenadores. La única pega que le puedo poner es el sonido, donde apenas escucharemos un par de efectos de golpes y cuando echemos juego fuego.
¿El mejor juego de Animagic para Amstrad? No, pero está cerca.

· MSX: Lejos de conformarse con una versión 1:1 de Spectrum, dotaron a los decorados de mucho más colorido que en la máquina de Sinclair, mejorando gráficos en algunos casos, y rehaciéndolos en otros. Además es ¡rápido! ¿Quién lo iba a decir de un juego de Animagic para MSX?
