The arcade machine was great, the Spectrum conversion was pretty good, but I'm afraid it just doesn't work with the light gun at all. This version of the Ocean game replaces the joystick control with the light gun, so theoretically, it should be even more like the arcade, but unfortunately, the flashing screen ruins it. The gun calibration sequence, peculiar to this game, also doesn't appear to work very well: the firing remains a bit inaccurate, no amtter how careful you are. Still, it's a variation on a very good theme, so it isn;t that bad.
