Includes 48k music! Although the Spectrum version lacks color depth and a bit of speed I still say it is overall a slightly better game than Commodore 64 version. Simply because the Spectrum version delivers in terms of gameplay and is more faithful to the original arcade coin-op (incl. how the objects animate, fight and react to each other). My feeling from Commodore version is that the sprites are rather optimized to look hires and colourful than deliver good bunch of punches and kicks. Instead of face-to-face action you are jumping and kicking around the screen like crazy - not really how the gameplay should perform in Dragon Ninja. Luckily, the Spectrum port offers nice animations with huge face2face kicks and punches and all that found in the arcade original. Really enjoyable, though I admit Speccy could have done a lot better job here (Jonathan Smith?).
