The world of Maranna has been ravaged by evil wizard Karg by opening the portals of hell and letting demons and monsters escape. Only one man can rescue the world from certain destruction, Rastan (that's you, matey!)!

Rastan is so very playable, you can't put it down! All levels are packed with impressive demons and scenery and every sprite is well animated. It has plenty of the neat touches that keep players coming back for more. The beating heart that represents your health is a good idea and there's also a continue option, so no more kicking your computer when you have to start all over again! The 48K game is slightly different to the 128K version in that each level has to be loaded in separately and you lose the music. It's one of the better re-releases this month, so it you have a bit of spare cash lying about send it to me (oi! -Ed)!! Erm, I mean go and get this...
